Industry Fundraising Continues for Japan Relief
Officials with United Fishermen of Alaska say fishing fleets, processors and others in the seafood industry have stepped up to the plate in fundraising to help Japan’s fishing communities, raising over a third of a million dollars to date. And, says UFA, they’re looking for more people in the industry to get involved. Anyone who would like to coordinate a fundraising event in their own fishing community with help from UFA is asked to contact Alaska Fishing Industry Relief Mission Inc. at www.akjapanhelp.org AFIRM has no overhead because its board is composed of volunteers so all contributions go directly for assistance of severely impacted fishing communities.
