The Alaska Division of Homeland Security says flood victims in Crooked Creek should have plenty of clothing after an outpouring of donations. They are now asking the public to redirect their charitable contributions to the flood ravaged community.
They say money is now the most helpful donation that people can make. Jeremy Zidek, spokesman for the state Division of Homeland Security says money “has a long shelf life and is easy to transport.” It can also be used to address any of the needs that arise.
The Village of Crooked Creek has set up a relief fund through Key Bank. The Association of Village Council Presidents has also set up a fund at Wells Fargo Bank for the Crooked Creek flood victims. To donate, just say it’s for “the Crooked Creek disaster fund”.
