Welcome to the Portland, OR Pilots For Kids homepage. Learn how to get involved and participate in Pilots For Kids activities in the Portland, OR area.
Each year while thinking ahead with great excitement about our Pilots for Kids hospital visits, I always like to take a moment and reflect on the memories of joy and enchantment that we will all see each year on the faces of the little ones.....
I always end up with the same thoughts:
Our Airline Jobs have given us a pretty good life! Pilots for Kids allows us the opportunity to pay it forward to others, showing we care, bringing love, joy and happiness to so many who really need us. There aren't words for how special it feels to give children and their families moments like these. Thank you Ed Faath for your vision and thank you to the many volunteers and donors for paying it forward each year.....
It is an honor to be part of this wonderful effort for the "Kids"!
Decembers visits this year brought new change to the area events. New Relationships were formed with "Ronald McDonald Houses" in Portland Oregon and "Share" in Vancouver Washington.
The first event was December 20th, we attended the "Photos with Santa" event at Share and the second event was on December 22nd at Ronald McDonald East house.
Both of our visits reminded us of the daily work that these folks do for so many. It is unbelievably impressive and humbling to witness.
Everyone was overjoyed to meet us all and were very appreciative of the toys, treats, smiles and joy we brought to their kids and families.....
Thoughts on moving ahead,
I thank you all, members and families, for everything you have given of yourselves for the Pilots for Kids Organization in the past and I look forward to growth with you and new members, continuing to enhance the lives of some pretty amazing kids and families that we provide Smiles and Happiness to....
All the best for a great year ahead,
