Making Wishes Come True

It’s that time of year again. The holiday season is quickly approaching and all the kids of the world are getting their wish lists assembled.

Here at AK Child & Family, our children have created their wish lists. We need your help to make their wishes come true. By sponsoring, donating or contributing (whether your money or your time) you can do just that.

Sadly the holiday season can be a terribly stressful time for the youth in our care, especially if they are away from their family for the first time, or when memories of past holidays bring them discomfort. Because of their intensive treatment, many of these youth will not be able to be home with their loved ones for the holidays. We try to do all that we can to make sure the holidays are a special time in spite of this. That means that we work hard to provide all of the usual holiday activities so they don’t feel like they are missing out. Activities like baking Christmas cookies and preparation for our Christmas Pageant and Banquet are all favorites around here. With your help, we can nurture our youth throughout the holiday season and let them know they are cared about not only during this time of year, but all through their time with us.

Our general wish list is available to download. We are in need of the items on this list year-round. If you or your business would like to make a contribution or would like to know how you can help us spread joy this holiday season, please contact Angela Rush by phone at (907) 346-2101 or by selecting the topic "General Inquiry" or "Donations" on our Contact Us page.
