One-day rummage sale provides year round returns in Denali

Employees from the Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge held a rummage sale this fall that netted $920 for Neighbor to Neighbor in Healy. The organization uses the funds to provide food and presents to needy families in the Denali Borough during the holidays. Items left over from the sale were donated to Value Village and the Fairbanks Resource Agency, which support services to children and adults with developmental disabilities in Interior Alaska.

“It was a great use for those lost and found baseball caps and rain jackets that people never claim,” said Susannah Whittaker, Assistant Controller for Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge.

The majority of those who scooped up the sale items were locals from the surrounding town of Healy. Over the past three years, the rummage sale has raised about $2,500 for Neighbor to Neighbor.
