Looking for a tangible way to make a real difference for a child in need this holiday season? Consider supporting Pilots for Kids. Since 1983, this international organization has visited with kids in shelters, orphanages, halfway-houses and most often hospitals. Just last year 25 events benefitted nearly 2000 children across the country.

DTW Capt. Bill Hoffer coordinates fundraising for the Delta volunteer group, and he says Delta pilots have always been among the most generous. There is an additional challenge this year however, which is the removal of our v-files. You may remember getting a donation envelope in your file which served as handy reminder to contribute. Nevertheless, Capt. Hoffer wants everyone to know there is still an easy way to help. Visit https://pilotsforkids.org/dues-donations/donations.php and direct your donation to DTW-Hoffer. 100% of the tax-deductible donation goes to the kids. Better yet, you can visit pilotsforkids.org to see events in your area.
