Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta Crisis Update

Saturday, January 31, 2009
On Tuesday, January 27th, I blogged about a local crisis in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta, where native population have been hit hard with a collapsing economy and an inability to purchase food and heating fuel.

Since then, I've been in contact with Ann Strongheart, a community organizer who wrote the enlightening piece Shopping Day in Nunam Iqua. She provided some additional information for donations and such.

Staples donations can be mailed to:

Nunam Iqua Food Drive
c/o Ann Strongheart
P.O. Box 7
Nunam Iqua, AK 99666

Cash donations can be made payable to the City of Nunam Iqua at the same address.
