Donlin Gold Hosts Largest Clothing Drive in Bethel
BETHEL, AK— For the sixth consecutive year, Donlin Gold has partnered with Mikelnguut Elitnaurviat (M.E.) Elementary School in Bethel, Alaska to distribute clothing, outdoor wear, and shoes to children and families in need. A total of 48 boxes of clothing and shoes were collected this year, the largest amount Donlin Gold volunteers have gathered yet.
During the spring, Donlin Gold employees volunteer their time collecting outdoor wear and shoes from the lost and found bins at various schools in the Anchorage School District. The items are cleaned and sorted, and packed for transport to Bethel. More than 200 students at M.E. will benefit from the clothing drive and be provided with warm winter gear.
Donlin Gold volunteers and school staff will be distributing the items to students and their families on Friday, September 28, 2012 from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. at M.E. Elementary School in Bethel.
Being a good neighbor is part of Donlin Gold’s commitment to responsible development in Yukon Kuskokwim region and supporting the clothing drive is one of many ways Donlin Gold is fulfilling this commitment.
