When the Interior Alaska Cancer Association applied for funding for fuel grants for Fairbanksans undergoing cancer treatment, they requested $2700 – well, we at O2C felt we could double that and set out to raise $5,400. By August 23rd our monthly donors had contributed $3,510 when the beautiful residents and our friends at Raven Landing Senior Community Center hosted a karaoke fundraiser that brought in $2,681 in one evening of singing and spaghetti!!! Warm Homes for Healing was over-funded when we approached Alaska Fuel Services and as soon as they learned about our project they donated $1500 and then found a $1500 match for their donation from Geohorn LLC!
The total raised for Warm Homes For Healing was $9,191 – and every penny will provide warmth and some relief for our beloved neighbors undergoing cancer treatment in Fairbanks.
This was truly a community effort! Thank you Fairbanks, Alaska
