Crowley Maritime Corporation's group recently completed the sale of 2.836 acres of unimproved land to Nenana Tortella Council on Aging for a mere $500. The lot, which has a market value of $25,000 upon recent appraisal in 2013, will be used by the council as a community match which is required to secure additional funds for a desperately needed, new Senior Center.

Crowley’s Nenana terminal serves as a loading port for barges making fuel and freight deliveries to communities on the upper Yukon River, including company owned tank farms in Fort Yukon and Galena. As many as 12 Crowley staff are employed seasonally operating the terminal under long term lease from the Port of Nenana.

The vacant land is adjacent to the Meda Lords Senior Living Center, owned by the council, and therefore presents a likely fit for the council’s expansion plans. The number of citizens in the community has continued to grow while the size of the council’s current building has not.

“The Council is an honest and well-run organization that continues to do good things for the senior residents of Nenana,” explained Crowley’s Captain Endil Moore, freight distribution manager in Nenana. “We were happy to help further their cause of providing nutrition, transportation and support services by donating this piece of land.”

“Crowley has always been a staunch supporter of the community of Nenana, particularly the Nenana seniors,” said Vickie Moyle, executive director, Nenana Tortella Council on Aging. “Crowley is one of the few large corporations that strives to have a positive impact in and around the communities in which they do business.”

The company says it continues to position itself as a leader in the Alaska fuel industry, providing transportation, distribution and sales of petroleum products to more than 280 communities across Alaska.
