UPDATES, EVENTS AND SEMINARS
We reached our Goal! Over 10,500 pounds were collected during the 2013 GCI-FRA Closet Collections Clothing Drive on Oct. 19, 2013. GCI teamed up with FRA to sponsor a community wide event and to raise 10,000 pounds of cloth. People from the Interior, and all the way from Nome Alaska brought used clothing to the Merhar Ave GCI store in Fairbanks. Those who donated received coupons and a chance to enter a raffle for a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 plus other fun door prizes from GCI. Special thanks to KWOLF and VMAX, Cookie Jar, Ralph Seekins and Era Alaska. Proceeds from the drive benefit FRA Program services. Check out the FRA Facebook GCI-FRA Closet Collections Clothing Drive photo gallery.
