Doughnations: How The Salvation Army Creatively Serves a Small Alaskan Community

In the remote village of Hoonah, Alaska, The Salvation Army has created a unique approach to raising money: by selling doughnuts. From May to September, cruise ships of all sizes stop at the port in Hoonah, and the hungry tourists coming off the ship discover The Salvation Army’s small doughnut shack, where they purchase the delicious & fresh mini-doughnuts in droves. The local corps officers (church pastors), Majors Kevin & Tina Bottjen, then direct those funds right back into the local community, using it to provide food, shelter, and other services during the long winter off-season.
