If you missed the Planes full of Toys "Joy Drive" this year, here's a recap: It just keeps getting better!
We struck gold and can officially say that 2018 is king for the most successful Christmas party to date in both attendance and toys collected! Angels from all over flew in to drop off toys! The work paid off and there are some happy kids thanks to the generosity of all of our friends (old and new) who contributed toys, financial donations, or volunteered.
From the bottom of our hearts...
The airport's official Christmas gathering on the 14th would not have been possible had it not been for the financial contributions from American Airports, CBAA, Van Wagner, EAA Chapter 96, and TAM! Thanks to all the UTOPIAN's for their support!!
Corporate sponsors like Deon & Sons, Robinson Helicopter Company, & Home Depot provided door prizes for raffles to attendees. Van Wagner Aerial Media sponsored a photo booth. American Airports provided entertainment & catering! We are hugely grateful for the contributions.
There are a couple friends we want to acknowledge who have consistently helped us spread the word about our toy drive - Ardis Jackson (Notary & Tax Services,) and Jane Gutierez (4 Seasons West Ski & Snowboard Club!) Thank you!
Lastly, but certainly not least. A very special "thank you" to one of our new partners - Zeta Amicae of Carson Auxiliary. These ladies adopted our toy drive and are responsible for a gracious cache of gifts that cannot go unmentioned.
Thanks to the efforts of the Compton Fire Department, we had another opportunity to help bring smiles to the faces of underserved kids! We thank them for allowing us to be part of something special.
On behalf of the Compton Airport Users & to all the above mentioned - one gargantuan THANK YOU!!!
