Foster children in the Copper River area had a little merrier Christmas this year because of a combined effort of giving. For the fourth year in a row, Ahtna worked with the Copper River Native Association (CRNA) to sponsor a Children’s Angel Tree for 35 foster children. Arrangements were made with Sparks General Store – a small local business in Glennallen with a variety of goods and gifts – to accept donations from Ahtna employees. Foster parents were able to bring the children to Sparks to pick out their own Christmas present. The foster parents got to see the children’s joy, CRNA was able to bring some unexpected happiness to local children, Sparks had extra business during a time that has been tough on small businesses, and our Ahtna employees had a beautiful opportunity to share with others during the holiday season.
