Saying goodbye to Kenai Peninsula United Way

Saying goodbye to Kenai Peninsula United Way

The nonprofit agencies on the Kenai Peninsula would like to say thank you to the Kenai Peninsula United Way Board of Directors, staff and volunteers for your years of service and support in our community.

We are all saddened by the news you will be closing your doors. United Way funding has provided vital services to our community through its participating agencies and the loss of those revenues will impact many programs.

We would like to encourage those who have donated to United Way through their employers in the past to continue to do so. Option “C” on the Alaska United Way Donation Form allows you to specify where you would like to invest your donation. Participating Kenai Peninsula agencies are listed on the back of the form and include Anchor Point Senior Center, Boys & Girls Club of the Kenai Peninsula, Hospice of Homer, Hospice of the Central Peninsula, Kenai Peninsula Food Bank, Kenai Senior Services, The Lee Shore Center, Love INC of the Kenai Peninsula, Seward Senior Center, South Peninsula Haven House, Sprout Family Services and the Sterling Senior Center.

All of these agencies provide services which make our community a healthier, happier place to live, and we hope you continue to support them in whatever way you can.
