On Friday, April 26, the employees of Chugach put its core behaviors to work, taking part in the Anchorage Chamber of Commerce’s Citywide Clean up. Chugach volunteers donned safety vests and protective gloves, and then they hit the streets with bright orange trash bags in hand. They scoured up and down the city-wide block to pick up a winter’s worth of discarded garbage.

Events Coordinator Dee Pletnikoff was thrilled with the turnout, “I thought the City Cleanup went great.  We had almost 40 participants, and we managed to collect three and a half truck loads of trash.  Employees Zorea Converse & Joe Tabios kick off the event with a safety briefing, and everyone went out, safely, and enjoyed the sunshine while helping our community,” she said. “All in all, it was a great success, and I really look forward to doing it again next year!”

Chugach would like to extend a huge thank you to the Events Committee for putting the clean-up together and to all the volunteers who helped make their community a better place!
