Dear Sitnews Editor:

As the members of the Board of Directors of the Ketchikan Homeless Shelter, (PATH), we would like to take this opportunity to thank the people of Ketchikan for their continued generosity to the homeless in our community. 

Many people gave food and cleaning supplies to our shelter during our annual food drive. Thank you to each one of those donors.  Whether your donation was large or small, it helped the homeless. We don’t know all of your names or we would thank you individually. For those people that have just anonymously dropped food and other donations off during the rest of the year we thank you as well.

Many others gave our program monetary grants, cash donations, services, food donations, and human comfort items such as coats, blankets and sleeping bags.  We would like to thank the following donors.  If we have forgotten your name, please know, we do thank you.

Thank you to:
