Friday is for clothing distribution only and on Saturday there are multiple services offered to assist veterans, including the blood draws and traditional support stations by the Alaska Health Fair.Saturday hours are 7:30am – 3pm. We are looking for volunteers and sponsors for the AHF portion of the event and free blood tests for Alaska vets.
With Flag Day being held earlier this week and Independence Day in just 2 weeks; we wanted to ask for your support for those who have given their all for our country.
