Atlantic El Paso (ELP) recently hosted an event for the El Paso Diabetes Association (EPDA) in their hangar. Every year in the last week of June, Camp Lydia Mann takes place for kids ages 5 to 12. This is a summer camp designed for kids with diabetes or at risk to develop diabetes.
Atlantic Aviation in Reno (RNO) has made it a point to be more involved in giving back within their community this year. After several employees threw around some ideas, they chose to come together and donate their time and efforts by volunteering for the Food Bank of Northern Nevada (FBNN).
In the early morning hours of Friday, May 12, 2017, Atlantic SKF was honored to help San Antonio Pets Alive! relocate over 50 dogs that they rescued and saved from being euthanized at a local shelter. These dogs were put on a private flight provided by Dog is My CoPilot who specializes in relocating rescue dogs to areas of the country that have a large demand for pet adoptions.
Rayelle Wojno, from Atlantic Aviation’s Sales and Marketing team, has a close friend, Katie Hofkamp, in end stage renal failure, which is also causing many other complicated medical issues. Katie is a wife and mother of an adorable and outgoing family. Katie and her husband love to give to their community and support their son and his entire team in their sporting adventures.
There are many ways to get involved and contribute to charities. One great cause is to participate in some type of run, which is not only good for your health and wellness, but by fundraising and donating to a charity of your choice, it’s helping others for a great cause.
