Tyonek Seeks Donations for Emergency Wildfire Supplies
ANCHORAGE -- As two wildfires rage near the village of Tyonek, Tyonek Native Corporation (TNC) has issued a call for help. The corporation is providing food and essential provisions for firefighters and displaced village residents and is asking for donations to help.
Tebughna Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization that funds cultural enhancements and educational opportunities for Tyonek shareholders and the village of Tyonek, is helping to gather funds that will be used strictly for this effort.
Donations can be made at any Wells Fargo bank with funds going to Tebughna Foundation, account #7758543065.
Those interested in donating material goods can drop them off at TNC headquarters at 1689 C Street, Suite 219, Anchorage, Alaska, 99501.
The following items are needed:
Ingredients for soup
Plates, napkins, cups
Sugar-free cough drops
Tyonek would also like to express their sincere appreciation to the approximately 50 firefighters who have worked tirelessly throughout the night to fight this blaze.
TNC’s mission is to profitably manage the corporation so that Tebughna shareholders have the opportunity to prosper individually and with our partners in business.
