Flight Centre Foundation Raises $35K On Annual Charity Trip
Flight Centre Canada has announced that its 4th Annual Charity Trip raised $35,000 for the Project Somos Children’s Village, an eco-sustainable educational community in Guatemala that provides quality education and healthy food to families in need. Twelve Flight Centre employees recently returned from a week-long trip to the Central American country, which involved spending time with the 30 children that attend the education and nutrition program, helping with food preparation, light construction, and gardening.
“The Flight Centre Foundation reflects our company’s profound commitment to corporate social responsibility,” said Allison Wallace, SVP communication and engagement. “Our annual charity trip allows our people to give back to the places where we book sustainable travel, through life-changing work for all those involved.”
