Alaska Airlines gives to WAVE
A donation of $1,200 was presented to WAVE by Alaska Airline General Manager Jon Wright on behalf of the Alaska Airlines’ Community Advisory Board.
“We look for philanthropic ways to help the community,” Alaska Airlines’ Community Advisory Board Chair Kris Norosz said. “This organization does a lot for the community and we felt they were the deserving party.”
Working Against Violence for Everyone, WAVE, is a non-profit group whose trained staff assists and advocates for people who are experiencing domestic violence in their lives.
According to Petersburg WAVE representatives, this organization and the staff believe that violence is an unacceptable way to deal with problems and that people have a right to be free of violence in their homes.
“WAVE is a very deserving organization,” Wright said. “We are happy to be able to help them continue doing good things in the community.”
