Who Can Be a Volunteer?
Congratulations Pat Deruyter on being chosen for June’s Volunteer Spotlight!

That makes us feel good because we’re being a part of that,” said Deruyter. Samantha Kirstein, the Fairbanks Community Food Bank Community Development Director, needs and appreciates your support and is ever so thankful for everyone who volunteers.

Josh Ward and his family and other Scouts planted a row for the Food Bank this summer. Josh heard on the news that the Food Bank asked the community to plant an extra row of their garden to share with the Food Bank, and he liked the idea for this Eagle Scout project.

Therefore, we have chosen to be an ALICE focused organization, meaning we proactively train for bad situations! We chose ALICE, because it is the leading training solution that increases an organization’s and individual’s odds of survival during a violent intruder event. ALICE, which stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate, is a post-Columbine, Virginia Tech, Sandy Hook strategy that goes beyond the conventional lockdown.
