Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) will host a food distribution event in partnership with Air Charter Advisors and Signature Aviation, to benefit airport community employees financially impacted due to COVID-19.
The food giveaway at the Broward County, FL airport is the culmination of the FLL’s “Operation Uplift” outreach initiative launched in early May to collect nonperishable goods to support laid off and furloughed workers across FLL’s commercial and general aviation partners, tenants, and service providers/suppliers.
“This is just one small way we can come together as an airport community to assist impacted employees and their families during this challenging and uncertain time,” said Mark Gale, CEO/director of aviation at the airport. “Our heartfelt thanks to everyone who donated items to help our impacted colleagues through this period of difficulty and economic hardship.”
During Saturday’s drive-thru event, displaced FLL workers will receive pre-packed bags with essential household items, including canned goods, paper products, and toiletries.
