Volunteer Spotlight: The Cotton Candy Grandmas
Beta Sigma Phi Sisters of Alaska
These energetic ladies and members of their families handle the kitchen during Project Homeless Connect every January and we could not be more grateful for the hard work they contribute.
Serving a hot meal to guests throughout the day during Project Homeless Connect is a crucial part of the event’s success and home-like, welcoming feel. Every year, we count on the expertise of the Sisters of Alaska in preparing and serving comfort dishes like turkey and gravy or hot chili and cornbread to those in need.
These dynamic volunteers lend their energy to many efforts around the Valley. While they are not affiliated with any collegiate or charitable organization, the “cotton candy grandmas” are renowned for using the proceeds from their Fair booth to support scholarships and other funds and activities around the Mat-Su.
From fashion shows and cotton candy booths (the Sisters, with much regret, discontinued their cotton candy booth in 2019), first aid and supporting local food banks, these wonderful women do it all!
We look forward to seeing what the Sisters of Alaska cook up for Project Homeless Connect in future years!
