Holiday Gift: Amerijet Donates $10,000 to FFTP To Help Impoverished Families
COCONUT CREEK, Fla. (Dec. 6, 2022) Amerijet International Airlines made a $10,000 contribution to Food For The Poor (FFTP) on Monday, Dec. 5, paying tribute to its customers and extending a hand to impoverished families during the holidays.
Amerijet CEO Tim Strauss presented a check to Ed Raine, President/CEO of FFTP, at the company’s Miami headquarters.
“We are tremendously grateful to Amerijet for this contribution – it’s a beautiful thing you’re doing, and we will do everything we can to earn your trust,” Raine said. “For more than 40 years, Food For The Poor has worked tirelessly to serve impoverished families in the Caribbean and Latin America. With this gift, we will be able to brighten the holidays for many families who face a daily struggle simply to survive.”
With almost 50 years of experience in the air cargo industry, Amerijet operates its own dedicated fleet of freighters from its primary hub at the Miami International Airport to destinations throughout the Caribbean, Mexico, Central America, South America and Europe.
The company made the unrestricted gift in lieu of purchasing Christmas gifts for its customers.
“Enriching the lives of the people in the communities we serve is part of our mission statement,” Strauss said. “This donation to Food For The Poor – which also works in some of the same communities – will go a far way to help those who are less fortunate this holiday season. We are honored to be part of such an endeavor that will touch lives in a way that we could not do on our own.”
Amerijet made a similar gift to FFTP in 2016 to build a home for a destitute family in Haiti and to help the country recover from Hurricane Matthew, which ravaged the country’s southern peninsula on Oct. 4, 2016.
“It’s always gratifying to work with a company that takes its role as a corporate citizen locally and internationally as seriously as Amerijet,” Raine said. “We consider it a privilege that they entrusted this contribution to Food For The Poor, and our pledge is to be good stewards of their generous gift.”
