Donations wanted for Mabel T. Caverly Senior Services fundraiser

Mabel T. Caverly Senior Services in Anchorage is seeking donations for its annual Parcel Post Party, one of its biggest fundraisers and takes place Sept. 25 this year at the Alaska Native Heritage Center, inside the Athabascan Ceremonial House. The event includes bidding on donated gift packages. If you are traveling, even inside the state, buy a few things from that area in the $25 to $30 price range that you think would make a good gift and drop them off at Mabel T. Caverly’s downtown office, 911 W. 8th Avenue, Suite 104. This is also a good opportunity to pass on gifts you do not want, or gift certificates for prize drawings.

Gifts should be delivered by Sept. 15 to allow time for wrapping. When people bid on the package, they will know where it’s “from,” but the contents will remain a surprise until opened. More expensive items may be donated for a live and silent auction.

The event takes place Sept. 25, 6 to 9 p.m. Admission is $20, or $10 for Mabel T members, and includes dinner, which will be a Mexican food buffet.

To learn more, call the center at 276-1496 or email
