Non-Profit Spotlight: American Cancer Society


Each month, GCI shines a spotlight on one of the Alaskan nonprofits we support to showcase the work they're doing to better our communities.

August — American Cancer Society

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Whether you are a breast cancer survivor or are going through treatment, the American Cancer Society is always there to support you. So are your neighbors here at GCI! We're happy we're able to partner with the American Cancer Society and help to spread awareness into the crucial work being done to fight cancer in Alaska. In addition to helping spread awareness, we’re pleased to contribute through cash, in-kind, and connectivity services to the many events the American Cancer Society puts on throughout the year.
