Nikiski Neighbors starts holiday programs

Nikiski Neighbors, a community-wide, broad-based group of individuals and community groups is putting together their Noel Tree Program to benefit families who are going through tough times. This program is intended to provide two clothing item needs and one item that matches the interests of the child, for example, if the child's interest is reading, then a book would be purchased.

All families living north of milepost 15.5 can apply, though we request that applicants not apply to other programs for assistance during the Christmas holiday season. Applicants will be contacted by a member of the committee to confirm the application and to verify the actual needs of the family. Applications are available at the office window at Nikiski North Star Elementary School. Talk with Mrs. Kelso if you do not see them. For further information, contact Rev. Laura Skiba at 776-8732. This is how to help: Attend meetings with your own ideas and input.
