    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The Juneau Tlingit & Haida Community Council distributed 2,500 fillets of Sockeye Salmon to its membership Saturday.

    JTHCC President Kenneth Southerland said 3,000 pounds of fish were donated to them from the Alaska Longline Fisherman's Association.

    The one-pound fillets were able to be picked up in a drive-through set up by the organization.

    Southerland said they had a couple hundred fillets leftover from the event and will be donating them to the Glory Hall, Housing First, Forget Me Not Manor, and elders in the Tlingit & Haida Central Council Elders Program.

    Southerland thanked the volunteers from within their council and tribal membership, and T&H Central Council who paid for the freight of the salmon.
