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.
The year 2020 has been a rough one. At Atlantic, we’re so grateful to be able to turn the end of this crazy year around for many families this holiday season with a new tradition we call Atlantic Adopt A Family.
Atlantic Aviation is constantly amazed at the constitution and character of our employees. We’re proud to showcase Lizzy, Jenn and Kenn from some of our Colorado locations who have all worked tirelessly for their communities.
Atlantic Aviation Opa-Locka (OPF) goes above and beyond each year when they coordinate their annual Turkey Run. The Turkey Run is a charity run that takes place at the Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport, in which the money that is raised is used to buy turkeys for families in need in the Miami-Dade Community. This year, the 6th annual Turkey Run, led by Atlantic’s Customer Relations Manager, Nina Perez, helped feed hundreds of families and raised thousands of dollars for Miami-Dade County.
With Thanksgiving nearing, and the circumstances that this year has brought, Atlantic JAN (Jackson, Mississippi) felt they needed to give back to their community in a big way. They started with a small idea: donate a couple of turkeys to families needing assistance in their area. Customer Service Manager, Kelly Vaughn, hit the ground running. She started looking for a local organization that JAN could team up with for Thanksgiving.
