Fundraising for Christmas is for Kids Begins
Fundraising for the annual Christmas is for Kids program is underway for the holiday season. The program, which provides Christmas gifts to children in Doyon region communities, is primarily funded by Doyon, Limited employee payroll contributions and fundraising by the Doyon Facilities team through local business sponsorships and lunch fundraisers.
For example, on November 16, Doyon Facilities held a lunch fundraiser at the Chief David Salmon Tribal Hall during the Tanana Chiefs Conference Christmas bazaar.
Facilities will also hold a daily lunch fundraiser during the Doyon holiday bazaar in the Doyon Plaza at 1 Doyon Place in Fairbanks on December 7 – 8. The holiday bazaar will take place from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. daily, and Facilities will serve lunch at a donation of $10 per plate beginning at 11 a.m. until all the lunches are sold.
Generally, the program provides gifts to children in two to three Doyon communities. The communities that receive gifts from the program rotate yearly.
In addition to providing gifts for children, Doyon Facilities also provides food to Elder facilities, such as the Denali Center Long Term Care located in Fairbanks.
