  • USUAA Give Thanks 2020

    USUAA is proud to announce Give Thanks 2020, focused on providing Thanksgiving food options to UAA students and Anchorage community members in need.

    Due to COVID-19, USUAA will not host its annual Thanksgiving Feast, which provides a full Thanksgiving meal free to UAA students and the Anchorage community. This Thanksgiving, USUAA has worked to support those in need by making available a limited number of $30 Fred Meyer gift cards to current UAA students and donating $1,000 to the Food Bank of Alaska.

    Current UAA students can request a gift card by filling out the USUAA Give Thanks 2020 form. Gift cards are limited and will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. Gift cards will be digital-only. This offer is limited to current UAA students, limit one per student.

    While this is not the Thanksgiving Feast we had in mind, USUAA emphasizes safety during this time for all UAA students and the Anchorage community.

    If you are interested in donating to support UAA students in need, please consider giving to the UAA Student Emergency Fund. The Food Bank of Alaska has many different ways to support the food needs of the Anchorage community. 

    If you have questions, please contact Zac Clark at 907-786-1371 or zac@alaska.edu.
