Earlier this month, we told you about two Envoy First Officers who started a grassroots donation drive for U.S. service members. Inspired by similar drives put on by American Airlines team members, Brian DePuy and Adam Kee gathered donations, supplies and volunteers to successfully send over 2,500 care packages to military bases on behalf of Envoy.

This past weekend, Brian and Adam invited volunteers from American Airlines, Envoy and the 100 Vets Who Give a Damn non-profit to assemble the care packages at the C.R. Smith Museum.

“It was a big success,” said Brian. “Thank you to all the volunteers and everyone else who helped make this all happen. Without all of us joining together, we would not have reached our goal of donations and care packages.”

Congratulations, Brian and Adam — and thank you for all you do!
