The blankets will be used for victims of emergency situations througout the area. Princess Cruises donated 1,000 blankets across Southeast Alaska, including Skagway and Ketchikan. Wallen said the company donates items such as blankets, mattresses and even patio furniture to several non-profit organizations. The items are used on the ships, then donated at the end of the season or when new items are obtained. Right: Albrecht attempts to stuff the last bag of a total of 100 blankets into her vehicle.
