In October, Credit Union 1 is raising funds for the Alaska AIDS Assistance Association (Four A’s) and their efforts to support and empower people living with or affected by HIV/AIDS. This association is also working toward the elimination of HIV infection and its stigma in all Alaskan communities. Four A’s currently provides services such as subsidized housing and medical care information, which allows ill Alaskans to pursue employment and vastly improve their circumstances!
Alaskan girls grow up in an extraordinary environment. Our daughters, granddaughters and nieces learn at a young age how to hike far, catch fish, sleep under the midnight sun and DREAM BIG!

Celebrate the thousands of Alaskan girls who need positive mentors in their lives with a donation to Girl Scouts of Alaska today!
