Chugach Donates Hundreds of Turkeys to Charity


Continuing a long tradition, Chugach Electric Association is donating 450 turkeys to 10 local charities as part of its annual community outreach over the holiday season. The turkeys will be delivered to the organizations the week of December 12. Chugach has donated turkeys to local non-profits as a way to help fill the need for holiday meals and food baskets throughout the local area for the past 15 years. The turkeys are purchased from Carrs/Safeway and distributed to the charities.


“The Food Bank alone serves 6,300 Alaska households each week, so we know the need is great in our community,” said Lee Thibert, Chugach CEO. “We are happy to do what we can to help ensure Anchorage families are able to have a holiday meal.”


The organizations receiving the turkeys include:


Bean’s Café

Brother Francis Shelter

Mabel T. Caverly Center

Anchorage Rescue Mission

St. Francis House

Covenant House


Food Bank of Alaska

Salvation Army

Lutheran Social Services
