We Build Community is one of the Core Behaviors that we at Chugach Alaska Corporation strive to achieve each and every day. Simply put, it means that we seek to play an active role in the communities where we live and work.

Recently, during Employee Appreciation Week, held April 22–26, the Chugach Events Committee found a special way to do just that. “When trying to plan out the week, we wanted to include a couple things to give back to our community,” said Events Coordinator Dee Pletnikoff. “First, we participated in the Anchorage Chamber of Commerce’s Citywide Cleanup, but figured we could find something else that would further help our community. So, in searching for some ideas, we came across a charity that is always seeking local involvement.”

While employees enjoyed their week of appreciation, they also took a moment to uphold our Community Core Behavior. Over the course of five short days, employees collected and donated an impressive amount of ‘building blocks’ for those in need. “In total, the great people of our company collected more than 400 food items, totaling 230 pounds! Not bad for five days!” Pletnikoff exclaimed.

The items collected went towards helping out the people who frequent and depend on the Food Bank of Alaska.

Chugach would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who donated, and we’d also like to thank the Events Committee for putting together our annual week of employee fun, appreciation, and philanthropy!

In all, Chugach recognized the great work of our employees, and they, in turn, did what they do best—they did their part to better their community.
