As we wrap up what has been a hard winter for many in Fairbanks, remember the efforts of groups like the Salvation Army that need support.

In February alone, the Army helped 15 people with rent, provided assistance to 31 families who couldn't pay utility bills and arranged for 200 families to receive food boxes. Other people in need were able to get vouchers for furniture, clothing, etc.

To continue this type of community work, the Army is holding a community fundraiser April 19 at Pike's Waterfront Lodge at 6 p.m.

Donna Davidson, a member of the Salvation Army advisory board, said the silent and outcry auctions are to include things like a Denali flight seeing tour with Everts Air, a Princess Tours package to Denali, Riverboat Discovery tickets, a handmade quilt and a lot more.

Some of the proceeds from the event are to help send kids to summer camp.

Tickets may be purchased by calling the Salvation Army office at 452-5005. The cost per person is $50. Dinner will be served by the Pike’s Waterfront staff.
