The 2006 Salvation Army Food Drive Set for Saturday


November 10, 2006
Friday AM

Ketchikan, Alaska - The 2006 Salvation Army Food Drive is set to take place on Saturday, November 11th from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. This year, donations will be collected at three locations in Southeast. Donation collection sites include A.C. Market in Klawock, City Market in Wrangell and Tatsuda's IGA in Ketchikan.

Each year, the Salvation Army provides necessary goods and resources to those in need. Though all services are offered year-round, the fall and early winter proves to be the busiest time of the year for the Salvation Army as more individuals reach out, unable to provide meals for their families during the Holiday Season. As applies during the rest of the year, the Salvation Army relies greatly on donations.

Alaska Marine Lines will be providing freight containers, which will serve as temporary storage for the non-perishable food items as they are delivered. KTKN and Gateway Country will broadcast live from Ketchikan, Klawock and Wrangell during the six-hour Veterans Day event, providing updates as each location works toward their goal with the help of residents from across Southeast.

With the food drive, comes the necessity of much assistance, in various magnitudes, from start to finish. Any groups or individuals interested in donating their time, talent or resources to make the 2006 Salvation Army Food Drive a success are encouraged to contact Jamie Beldo at KTKN/Gateway Country by phone at 225-2193 or by e-mail at
