‘Tis the season for giving – And giving back! Last week, Envoy Captain Doyle Tonneson, along with other pilot volunteers from various carriers, visited the Children’s Medical Center in Plano, TX to help distribute gifts as part of the Pilots for Kids organization.

Pilots For Kids is an international, nonprofit organization that is dedicated to helping hospitalized children. Each year, members of Pilots for Kids collect donated toys from crew members to distribute at local hospitals, shelters, and orphanages. Besides toys, members have purchased other needed items, such as, wheelchairs, special hospital beds and other special equipment.

“I’m happy to have been able support the Pilots for Kids organization for a second year in a row,” said Captain Tonneson. “Together we were able to pass out more than 250 presents to kids less fortunate than us this holiday season. It was such a touching and humbling experience.”

Thank you to those who donated their time, money and efforts to this great cause! Click here to learn more about Pilots for Kids.
