We would like to assist fire survivors currently rebuilding and improving their homes in obtaining building materials and supplies.

Examples: blue board, Tyvek, visquine sheeting, small hardware (nails, screws, staples), lumber, etc.

While we strive to connect with each family regularly, we understand that plates are full, and needs are ever-changing.

If you are still in need of assistance with building materials, please call (907)745-5824 or email [email protected]

You may include information about other needs, too! Frequently-heard requests include household essentials (toilet paper, paper towels, dish tubs, dish drying racks, garbage bags...).

We appreciate the community's strength, patience and support as we work toward recovery.

We were close to the door, so we calmly walked outside. No panic. And no injuries from flying dishes, furniture and books.
