Sometimes we have to look beyond the walls of our stores and pitch in to help that big world out there. BOSCO'S makes lots of donations to groups throughout Alaska. Occasionally we make a bit of an event out of it. This page chronicles some of the contibutions we've made to the community.

In 2007, 2008 and 2009 we've donated to numerous groups including the Anchorage Sympnoy Orchestra's Halloween Concert, the Alaska Jewish Historical Museum & Community Center, Boy Scouts of America, Alaska Standing Together Against Rape, the Eagle River Triathlon, the Bike For Women and the Arctic Bicycle Club.

In 2009, we also donated a load of comics and candy to Operation Santa.

THE SUPERBOWL PARTY at Elmendorf Airforce base February 4, 2007 will include dozens of prizes from BOSCO'S. Anchorage's airforce and army bases have had important roles in Iraq and Afghanistan. We're glad for the opportunity to show our appreciation for their sacrifices.

Christmas of 2006 was brighter for lots of kids as both BOSCO'S and our customers donated over $1,000 in toys to Toys for Tots.

In June of 2006, BOSCO'S gave away 25 sessions at Andre Toliver's Baseball Fundamentals Camp with George Foster. We've worked with Andre for many years helping sponsor kids who want to go to his annual camps. We also donate bags with cards and a price guide to every kid who signs up for his camps. Becketts and Tuff Stuff generously donated price guides this year.

JUNE 2006

BOSCO'S has helped sponsor the Eagle River Triathlon for several years. We lend our canopies, and donate candy and other goodies and bags for all the swag the athletes get. (Thanks to Upper Deck for bags for the kids this year.)

The Eagle River Triathlon attracts Alaska's top adult triathletes down to the youngest.

March 2006

Join BOSCO'S in helping artists who are struggling from the impact of the Katrina and Rita hurricanes! Through March, any donation you make at the register will get you a genuine, first post-Katrina-Mardi Gras necklace! (while supplies last.) These were caught just for you by John Bosco on the streets of New Orleans! Click that picture for more info!

The 2005 August Back Issue sale was a huge success! Smart readers and collectors packed in loads of great comics on the cheap!

The final tally resulted in a $500 donation to Anchorage Boys & Girls Club!

In December of 2004, we planned to donate toys to the big Toys for Tots campaign. Someone had the brain fart that we should ask our customers if they'd like to donate, too.

Yow! They sure did. We tried it again in 2005 and had great success then, too. In 2005 we donated over $400 in toys and leveraged the $ by purchasing the toys at our wholesale price.

November 2005

Sales were popping for these Tiger Cubs at BOSCO'S in the Dimond Center! After some practice, they settled on the sales pitch "Please buy some popcorn! It's better than you ever imagined it could be!" Who could resist?



BOSCO'S and our customers donated over $1,000 worth of Gundam models to Toys for Tots. Over 80% of this was the result of our generous customers donating their change at the register during the first two weeks of December 2004!

Our August 2004 Back Issue sales netted $857 for the Friends of the Library to restock their Graphic Novels!

Here you see John Bosco handing a check to Dean Brovald, a real live Anchorage Librarian and widely respected comic collector!
