Last week to support us in Pick.Click.Give.

It's the last week before the filing deadline for the 2015 Alaska Permanent Fund Dividend, and this year the Sitka Local Foods Network hopes you support us in the Pick.Click.Give. charitable giving program. Pick.Click.Give. is a great program that allows Alaska residents to give back to their communities by donating part of their PFDs to a variety of nonprofit organizations around the state.

Your support of the Sitka Local Foods Network helps us in our mission to promote and encourage the growing, harvesting and eating of local foods in Sitka and Southeast Alaska. Your contributions support the Sitka Farmers Market, St. Peter's Fellowship Farm communal garden, educational programs on growing and preserving local food, the sustainable use of traditional foods, and other local foods-oriented programs in Sitka. 

Here's how it works. Eligible Alaskans can file for their PFDs from Jan. 1 to March 31. Go to pfd.alaska.gov/ and follow the application's directions. Near the end of your application you'll be asked if you want to participate in the charitable giving program. Click yes, and you'll be taken to the Pick.Click.Give. part of the application. Search for the Sitka Local Foods Network and add a contribution in multiples of $25. There are more than 500 participating nonprofits from around the state, including 22 from Alaska. 
Even though the PFD application deadline is March 31, Alaskans have until Aug. 31 to go back into their PFD applications to update and add new Pick.Click.Give. donations. 

Anybody who makes a Pick.Click.Give. donation will be entered into the Double Your Dividend Sweepstakes, where 10 lucky Alaskans win a second PFD. We thank you for your support of the Sitka Local Foods Network through the Pick.Click.Give. program.
