Alzheimer's Disease has impacted many of our Yulista families. Those living and caring for those with Alzheimer’s live in an unpredictable world and we want to show our support. Yulista team member, Maura Claxon, shares her personal story as a caregiver and the strength needed to continue the fight.

“Having a loved one with Alzheimer's is one of the hardest experiences I've had in my life thus far. Being the primary caregiver for that loved one made it even harder. In 2014, I uprooted my entire life and moved to Pittsburgh to live with my grandparents after my grandfather was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. I watched him change from a kind, boisterous, loving man into a lost, distant, and sometimes mean man. The day came where he no longer knew who I was and memories were all I had left, even though he was still living. Every year I participate in the Walk to End Alzheimer's in hopes that one day, no other families will go through what my family went through, and no one else will suffer in the ways my Pappy did.” – Maura Claxon, Yulista Team Member

Join us in the fight to end Alzheimer’s, find your local Walk to End Alzheimer’s and participate in this movement.

“Knowing that we can make a dynamic impact in the individual lives of strangers who we may never meet, that is powerful…Just know every little bit helps, and it might make an impact on someone you didn’t expect…” Trisha Hancock, YulistaCARES Chairwoman.

It’s the season of giving and #TeamYulista’s generosity never ceases to amaze us. As part of our annual #YulistaCARES Holiday Toy Drive, Team Yulista donated and delivered clothes, monetary donations, and gifts to families in need over at National Children Advocacy Center and Department of Human Resources of Huntsville. This year we were able to sponsor 6 families through NCAC and 29 children through DHR, and 3 veterans through VFW to help make their holiday special and a little less stressful. Thank you to all our team members and Yulista families who contributed to our Holiday Toy Drive and other campaigns throughout 2022. Your kindness touches the lives of so many. #WeAreYulista #Community

Yulista is a forever company. We are connected to our past and committed to a future of enduring prosperity and inspiration for our Alaskan Native Shareholders. We draw inspiration from our Alaskan roots every day.

To celebrate #AlaskaDay, we are excited to share a special video recapping our recent #YulistaCARES trip to Alaska. With the help of our parent company, Calista Corporation, #TeamYulista, and our local communities, we were able to hand deliver 900 backpacks and beanies to students in the rural villages of Hooper Bay & Chevak. Our delivery team got to experience the beautiful tundra and meet the families, students, and teachers of our larger Shareholder family.

Alaska holds a special place in our heart and its beauty shines through its landscape, culture, but most importantly its people. A link to the full video is in our bio.

This is one of my favorite photos from yesterday. Silly faces and big smiles.

8 employees from yulistaholdingllc and calistacorp traveled to Hooper Bay and Chevak to pass out school supplies and love on almost 900 amazing kiddos in the villages.

There will be more from the trip coming soon, but I can’t begin to explain how full my heart is. The #yulistacares 2022 Backpack Campaign has been a huge success! Thankful for all who helped to knock it out of the park… #giveback #travel #adventure #explore #outreach #hooperbay #chevak #alaska
