It’s time for our Owners to choose which local nonprofits will receive our Lend a Hand register round-ups in 2022.
There are 26 nonprofits to consider this year, and eight of those have never received Lend a Hand donations. We invite our Owners to select 11 organization for our monthly register round-ups. (We reserve December for a giving tree and round-ups for the Interior Alaska Center for Non-Violent Living.)
Please review the applications linked below before completing the Lend a Hand selection survey. By request, we have arranged the list into two groups: nonprofits that received Lend a Hand donations in the past and those that have not. You can also see the years an organization has benefitted in parentheses. To view prior years’ donation amounts, click here.
CLICK HERE TO VOTE. As always, each Owner account is allowed only one vote, so please discuss your choices with others in your household before voting.
Our survey will remain open through December 24th. Please contact Kristin Summerlin, Marketing & Owner Services Manager, if you have any questions.
