Yulista Backpack Campaign 2019 in Emmonak & Kotlik
Calista Subsidiary delivers backpacks and school supplies to kids in Emmonak and Kotlik
Thank you to Yulista Holding, LLC employees for raising money to provide backpacks and school supplies to the kids in Emmonak and Kotlik this year!
“I live here in Emmonak and have a lot of family in Kotlik, so this touches the heart,” says Kiara Johnson, a Calista Shareholder and former Yulista Intern.
“I remember going to school [in Emmonak] with just a pencil,” Kiara says. “For these kids to be able to have pens, highlighters, notebooks, backpacks, hats and flashlights—I was in their shoes. I know what it means for them. It feels good for them to have more.”
Yulista, a subsidiary of Calista Corporation, is based in Huntsville, Alabama, and saw employees raise enough money to purchase backpacks and school supplies for these Calista Region villages and for kids in their own Madison County community.
This donation to the schools of the Region makes an impact in the lives of our Shareholders and students with a reignited passion for learning! Thank you Yulista and its employees for providing backpacks with supplies to our Youth!
This is the 6th year of the Yulista Backpack Campaign. Yulista Holding, LLC goes to 2 or 3 different villages in the Calista Region every year.
