Disaster Relief Program for Displaced Haines Residents
The Haines Chamber of Commerce, Chilkoot Indian Association and Haines Economic Development Corporation are working in collaboration to extend the recent byHaines initiative to assist those families most in need as a result of the recent weather related disaster. Funds donated to those organizations during and after the crisis will help the 33 families currently displaced due to inaccessible, destroyed or damaged homes. Vouchers to local businesses will be distributed to families for discretionary purchases including groceries with the dual purposes of supporting local businesses as well as those in need during the overlapping Covid and weather crises our community is experiencing. More information about the program and eligibility can be found on the application form below.
We are also accepting donations for this collaborative effort. Your contribution will not only help our displaced residents who cannot return to their homes, it will also help our struggling small businesses stay afloat during this latest disaster.
