Clothing, outdoor wear and shoes were distributed on Friday to area children and families in need. For the sixth consecutive year, Donlin Gold partnered with Mikelnguut Elitnaurviat Elementary School to distribute the clothing and a total of 48 boxes of clothing and shoes were collected this year, the largest amount Donlin Gold volunteers have gathered yet.

In the spring, Donlin Gold employees volunteer their time collecting outdoor wear and shoes from the lost and found bins at various schools in the Anchorage School District. The items are cleaned and sorted, and packed for transport to Bethel. More than 200 students at M.E. will benefit from the clothing drive and be provided with warm winter gear.

Donlin Gold holds the collection and distribution project as part of its commitment to being a good neighbor on in the Y-K region.
