Eastern Iowa Honor Flight was presented a check in the amount of $85,000.00 from the employees of Quaker through fundraising efforts of the Valor Group. These are employees of Quaker who are veterans, and are driven to make sure that as many veterans possible get the opportunity to travel to see the memorials in Washington, DC dedicated to their service and sacrifice. Our thanks to Allen Stekl, Jason Brandon, Steve Blake, the members of the Valor Group, and the many employees of Quaker, and their parent company PepsiCo for their company match.
We stopped by PMX Industries to present the company with a certificate of appreciation for their recent donation of $20,050.00. Company President S G Kim accepted for the company on behalf of the employees.
This certificate of appreciation was presented to the one entity who is a vital supporting component of our operations. Without them and their support, our flight operations would get very interesting. We stopped by the Eastern Iowa Airport to thank them for their continuing partnership and support.
The Wright-Way Trailer Company of Hiawatha, IA recently provided the Eastern Iowa Honor Flight with a trailer for our use until such time as we are no longer in business. This greatly increases our logistics ability. So we stopped by to thank them, and also present them with a certificate of appreciation.
