Friday, 7/29/16, we held our Quarterly Anniversary Recognition Celebration, and wanted to share the much deserved recognition with the entire organization.
To our Quarter 2 Honorees:
The successful growth of our company is the direct result of you, our valued employees. People are and always will be our greatest asset. Your dedication and commitment serve as a vital link in the chain which drives our operation. You are an important member of our team and your abilities and contributions will be an important part of our continued success.
Thank you for all that you do and please accept our good wishes on the anniversary of your employment with Flightstar.
With Flightstar’s partnership with Dreams Come True we were able to make our first dreamer’s wish happen. Makenzie is 11 and battling Cystic Fibrosis. Her family is local to southern Georgia and were very excited to make Makenzie’s dream of going to New York reality. Some places she visited were Dylan’s Candy Bar, American Girl store, Central Park Zoo, saw Wicked and had a backstage tour. We are thankful to be part of making Makenzie’s wish come true.
Flightstar Aircraft Services, a leader in Aviation Maintenance, formed a new charity partnership with Dreams Come True. The foundation’s main purpose is to support local Jacksonville families with children battling a critical illness. A life changing sickness not only affects their family members but also affects a community. “If we can put a smile on a child’s face even for just one day it would be all worth it”, stated Jerry Hernandez, President of Flightstar.
The charity was founded in 1984, and is the only locally based nonprofit organization dedicated to using the power of a dream to bring hope. Dreams Come True has made dreams come to fruition for more than 3,400 children. Eligible children battle a life-threatening illness, are between the ages of 2 ½ and 18, are referred by their physician, and live in or are treated in the Northeast Florida or Southeast Georgia area. Dreams Come True applies all contributions, unless designated otherwise by the donor, directly to fulfilling the dreams of LOCAL children. It is because of the generous support of the community that Dreams Come True has brought tears of joy and smiles of happiness to so many ill children.
