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.
At Atlantic, we are proud of the individual accomplishments of every single one of our employees. These accomplishments range from personal to professional life goals to collective efforts within their communities. When Atlantic heard about employee Brian Fee raising over $3,000 for a charity in his community, we knew we had to share his story.
When Atlantic Reno General Manager, Mike, was called late one night he didn’t know what to expect. On the other end of the phone was one of his lead line service technicians with an idea to help crew members of air ambulance flights. Lead LST Kordell Sesock came up with the idea for the RNO team to come together and to donate snacks and drinks to the air medical flight crews that are risking their own health to continue transporting patients in need of critical care.
Atlantic Aviation is dedicated to find ways to care for one another and our communities during these uncertain times. We find ourselves distanced from those we love and the elderly community in particular. It’s this community that has been isolated from social connections while we all practice social distancing. As a company we want to turn this into a positive and give back to our community by partnering with Go Rentals and donating to Meals on Wheels.
