Atlantic locations across the country have hosted blood drives recently to help with the national blood shortage we are experiencing. Currently, hospitals are responding to an increased number of trauma cases and ER visits compared to earlier years, and this is resulting in more blood products being needed and used to save lives.
Atlantic's commitment to our environment and our communities is strong and keeps growing each year. We foster a passion, as citizens of this Earth, to make sure we are doing our part to protect each other, our environment, and our future.

While ten Atlantic locations participated in the new Adopt A Family Program for the holiday season, many other Atlantic Aviation locations went above and beyond to support their communities this holiday season, as well. In the last couple of months of 2020, Atlantic locations collectively donated hundreds of thousands of items for families in need, like presents, clothing, food and general necessities for local programs, such as food banks and shelters. A few went even further and got to know individual families in their area and supported them for Christmas. Below are just a handful of incredible acts of kindness and philanthropy that individual Atlantic locations have provided for their community.
