Northland's Service to the Community
Northland believes in helping and participating in the communities that we serve. We're very active in sponsorship of the Iditarod Basketball Tournament in Nome, the Golden North Salmon Derby in Southeast Alaska, the Sockeye Classic Tournament in Dillingham, Kuskokwim 300 race in Bethel, and many other local events. We are also involved in national charitable organizations like the following:
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
Northland has been committed to helping find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis since the mid 1980's, when the young daughter of a customer of the company was stricken with the disease. Since then, Northland has been actively involved, both financially and in time commitment by management, in raising funds to help finance research to find a cure.
Beads of Courage
Northland supports the Beads of Courage program benefiting children coping with serious illness. The program provides innovative, arts-in-medicine supportive care for children and their families that are coping with cancer or other serious illness. Children tell their story using colorful beads as meaningful symbols of courage that commemorate milestones they have achieved during their treatment path.
