We would like to thank the many individuals, organizations and businesses who contributed to our Emergency Kit Campaign. The campaign, which began in September as a National Preparedness Month activity, ends this month with the distribution of 230 basic emergency kits to organizations around the peninsula who serve the low-income elderly. The kits contain AM/FM radios, first aid kits, alert whistles, personal hygiene supplies, can openers and other basic items.

Sponsors and volunteers who generously supported this important project include Agrium Kenai Nitrogen Products, Alaska Industrial Hardware, Barbara Beemun, Richard Campbell, city of Soldotna employees, ConocoPhillips, Cook Inlet Housing, Fred Meyer, George and Dee Gaddis, Home Depot, Homer Electric Association, Dr. Jerry Hu, Kenai Curves, Kenai Firefighters Association, Kenai Peninsula Borough and E911 Communications Center employees, Kenai Peninsula Citizen Corps Council, Kenai Peninsula Economic Development District Inc., Kenai Public Health, KSRM, Dr. Tom Kobylarz, Liquidation World, Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC), Nikiski Fire Department, Nikiski Senior Citizens Center, PackRat Military and Paint Ball Supply, Peninsula Clarion, ProComm Alaska, Radio Shack, Dr. and Mrs. Rohloff, The Salvation Army, Sikorski Consulting, Soldotna Boy Scout Troop No. 1616, Spenard Building Supply, Three Bears and many more anonymous donors from the community at large.

Thanks to everyone who so generously pitched in to help with this project. Because of you, a “Gift of Safety” will be given to 200 low-income seniors this holiday season.
