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.
