Community Focus

The commitment of Kuna’s team to improve the quality of life for Alaskans is not limited to work hours. Our staff’s genuine interest in Alaska and its people is obvious in our activities outside the office. At Kuna, we are active participants in our community. Here are just a few examples of Kuna’s extra-curricular teamwork:

American Heart Association Heart Walk

In 2020, Kuna held our own Heart Walk event since COVID-19 prevented a large gathering. We enjoyed coming together to help fight heart disease and stroke. It’s important to keep our focus on community, especially in times of change.

Anchorage’s Adopt-a-Road Program

Kuna has participated in this program for more than 10 years and is excited to have recently been assigned a segment of Arctic Boulevard near the Midtown office.
