Tundra Tidbits: ANC Pilots for Kids - 11/20/17


The Tundra Tidbits


Hello, again, fellow Far North Flyers,

As we enter the holiday season, I am reminded more so than ever how fortunate I am for not only being able to provide for my family in the manner that I am, but also for the privilege of being able to have you all as my colleagues and many of you as my friends.

Please consider making a donation to our local chapter of Pilots for Kids. 100% of your donation will go to the children of Alaska and your donation is fully tax deductible. I just checked and according to Google, there are 5 major holidays in December, 6 if you count Festivus on 12/23.

They are:

  • Ashura (Muslim) on 12/5
  • Bodhi Day (Buddhist) on 12/8
  • Hanukkah (Jewish) beginning on 12/20 and lasting seven more nights
  • Christmas (Christian) on 12/25
  • Kwanza (African American and pan-African celebration of family) on 12/26

I know that I speak for Todd and TJ when I wish each and every one of you a very happy holiday season.

Be Safe Out There,


Pilots for Kids

"Helping Hospitalized Children Since 1983"

It’s that time of year again! Our Pilots for Kids elves are busy coordinating, buying and wrapping presents for children in Anchorage area hospitals this holiday season. Please help us give back to our Anchorage community.

How can you help? 

Donate: The Pilots for Kids (PFK) organization is a 501c(3) charity and your donation is tax deductible. 100% of the money you donate stays here in Alaska and is used to purchase gifts for our local children. The website is: www.pilotsforkids.org and donations should be directed to ANC (Coordinator Service).

Volunteer: Hospital visits are set up for Wednesday, December 20th. Volunteers will meet at the coffee shop in the Barnes and Noble bookstore on Northern Lights Blvd. and at 9:15 a.m., we’ll depart for the hospitals. Please come in full uniform with hat (or Santa hat) and blazer.

This year, we will be visiting Providence Hospital and the Alaska Native Medical Center.  They are always grateful to see our group of Santa’s helpers spreading the holiday spirit!  Also, a smaller group will visit the Charlie Elder house, a residence for homeless teenage boys. Our PFK group works hard to reach out and touch those children and their families who find themselves in difficult situations over the holiday season. 

Thank you for supporting the Pilots for Kids organization and especially for opening your hearts to our local children. This worthwhile program can only succeed with your help.
