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"!
Our PDX area PFKD's events this year were all amazing!
Once again our Hearts were full bringing joy and many smiles to Children and Families experiencing very difficult situations in their lives.....
We began on Dec 20th at Ronald McDonald House in Portland with a full Dinner and Christmas Party including many interactive stations, Christmas carols, Santa Claus and Toys for everyone! On Dec 21st we continued to Share Homestead and Orchards shelters in Vancouver for Christmas Party's at each. On Christmas we returned to both Share houses, delivering a Christmas Present bag for everyone in each room to have a present to open on Christmas Day.... All very special!
A big thank you to those Crew Members and families who attended this years events, I want to welcome again our new members including many new Alaska Airlines Crew members and families. To those on trips, I know you were with us in Spirit, and to those behind the scenes helping out, you are my heroes as well... Thank you All!!!
Here's to an awesome 2018 for everyone.....
