BSNC and BSF sincerely thank shareholder Cindy (Towarak) Massie and her husband Thomas for their generous $20,000 donation to the Bering Straits Foundation. Cindy’s parents are the late Clarence and Guerie Towarak of Unalakleet. Cindy and Tom also made a generous $15,000 donation in 2007. Cindy stated, “Being from the Bering Strait region, I know firsthand how difficult it is to earn money for an education, especially for someone living in the villages. The Thomas and Cindy Massie Foundation is very happy to be able to help individuals from the region in furthering their education. We would like to encourage other organizations and individuals to consider making contributions to charitable organizations like the Bering Straits Foundation.”
