All year long, the airline industry gives wings to wishes by helping to fulfill our children’s many travel-related requests. And on December 12th, Delta Airlines and Massport celebrated those wish-filled skies of 2009 – by creating a holiday wonderland on the ground!
Together, Delta and Massport partnered to host a Holiday Wonderland Party at Logan Airport for wish children and their families. The Delta hangar transformed into a magical playground for our children, who danced to music, played in a bouncy castle, and explored arts and crafts projects.
Families also enjoyed the opportunity to tour a Delta airplane and a Massport fire truck. And of course, holiday magic was in the air when Santa and his elves flew down from the North Pole for a surprise visit!
“We are so grateful to Delta and Massport. Their generosity gave our children the chance to experience a little extra magic beyond their wish experiences,” said Charlotte Beattie, Chief Executive Officer of the Foundation. “Our transportation partners are essential to the Foundation’s wish-granting program.”
Delta is one of many airlines that will direct your frequent flier mile donations to our children's wishes. Click here to learn more.
