Supporting heart health

Team High Voltage was pleased to once again support the American Heart Association’s Alaska Heart Run. The 2021 run and walk was a virtual experience with participants encouraged to track their own hike, bike, run, walk, or other activity on April 24. Chugach’s team raised over $1,000 to support the work of the American Heart Association.

Helping our neighbors

Chugach employees are continuing to donate time to local non-profits under the Employee Volunteer Program. Chugach employees are given 16 hours of normal work hours each year to volunteer with community groups. Following COVID-19 pandemic protocols, employees have recently helped out at the Salvation Army, Food Bank of Alaska, and the Children’s Lunchbox.

Support for Anchorage families

Chugach employees donated dozens of toys in support of the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program. The Angel Tree is a holiday assistance program where new clothes and toys are provided to Anchorage families in need. Chugach has participated in the program for several years. In addition to the toys, employees also donated $1,300 in cash and gift cards to purchase clothes and other needed items.
