When you give to KYUK during our spring fundraiser you’re supporting student programming and services. This year when you give through Pick.Click.Give you can win $1,000 for yourself and the YK Delta nonprofit organization of your choice in the Give+Get Drawing sponsored by Bethel Community Services Foundation.

To be eligible for the drawing just file for your PFD and choose to give a portion of your PFD to KYUK or one of these other participating organizations: Bethel Family Clinic, Canine Comfort, Tundra Women’s Coalition, Yuut Elitnaurviat or Yuut Yaqungviat. The deadline is March 31st.

If you already filed it’s not too late to enter the drawing, just go back to the pfd site and click the green button labeled “Add or Change My Pick.Click.Give. Donation.”

Individual giving is a critical part of our sustainability and our mission. If you believe the service we provide is important to you and your community we hope you’ll consider giving an amount that’s right for you.

And good luck, for both our sakes.

Bethel could see its first liquor store in four decades if the Bethel Native Corporation goes ahead with plans to open a package store and it clears regulatory hurdles. BNC President and CEO Ana Hoffman said via email that a wholly-owned subsidiary, Bethel Spirits, LLC is in the process of applying for a license to put a package liquor store in a portion of the Kipusvik facility. That’s the location vacated last week by the Swanson’s grocery store.
