Sitka Mutual Aid

Neighbors taking care of neighbors in the face of COVID-19
 

Who We Are

Sitka Mutual Aid Network is a project of the Sitka Conservation Society that was launched in March 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. While all of us have been affected by this challenge, we know that many people will be disproportionately impacted both by the virus and the preventative measures required.

 

Sitka Mutual Aid is one way to show solidarity and practice community care during this difficult time.

 

We match requests for assistance with offers of support, connecting Sitkans who can help one another. We serve people with financial need, people in quarantine,  people in self-isolation, and people at high-risk for COVID-19. Our primary forms of assistance are help with no-contact deliveries and errands, financial aid for groceries, and special distributions of goods.

We can also sign households up for ALFA's seafood donation program. If you would like to receive a delivery of free local seafood click the request support button and fill out the simple form. Deliveries are typically made on Thursdays.
