A surprise message

We (heart) KNOM!

On a recent grocery run, our volunteers returned to the KNOM vehicle to find a message written in the dust of the back windshield: “We ♥ KNOM!”

Because of the lack of trees and grass in Nome – and the great prevalence of dirt roads and strong winds – Nome cars typically wear a permanent coating of dust. Mischievous residents often write playful messages on the dust-encrusted cars.

This is but a small sign of the incredible acts of kindness we receive every day – from our listening community and from kind supporters like you.
