Gustavus Community Center yoga
GUSTAVUS, AK— Using funds from a 2020 AARP Community Challenge Grant, non-profit Gustavus Community Center (GCC) has successfully furnished and equipped their center’s fitness room. GCC was awarded funding in October 2020, amid COVID-19 and the center’s opening. “The  pandemic came at a time when our brand-new facility had just been completed and we were getting ready to open the community’s first fitness center,” said Board President Sean Neilson. “The Community Challenge Grant helped us to safely open our doors, providing not only new opportunities for physical fitness but critical community connection as well.”
