Eagle has just experienced their worst flood in recorded history. Many Dawsonites remember our flood in 1979 and the devastation that it created.
So I’m calling on Dawsonites to help out in any way that you can by sending care packages to Eagle Bible Chapel, Amundson St, Eagle, AK 99738. Unfortunately, there are families that have lost everything. Items such as fleece or wool jackets/shirts, wool trousers, foul-weather gear, knit hats, gloves, socks, rubber boots , etc. Don’t forget underwear, toiletries, pain-killers, emollient hand lotions, soap, towels or anything else you can think of that could help.
Here’s a link to the American Red Cross, they have contact info regarding the Eagle disaster.
The Fairbanks News Miner has more info as well.
If there is another way for Dawsonites to help our friends in Eagle let me know and we’ll get it going. Perhaps a rebuilding bee once the water is gone. Your thoughts?
If you prefer, just bring your donations to the city office and we’ll package everything up and get it to the people in Eagle.
