Northeast Yellow Cargo Serves Holiday Mission
Yellow Cargo launches holiday Santa mission for needy families...
Northeast Airlines issued a statement midday at their corporate offices in Chicago, that perpetuates its social responsibility in giving back to the community.
Since Moday, December 21st, 2015 Northeast Airline's Yellow Cargo division began it's Christmas Feed Flights with 2 MD-11Freighters that have transported multiple metric tonnes of donated non-parishable food items, chocolates and candy parcels, unopened donated toy items, blankets, pillows, medical supplies, and fresh clothing items, donated by various department store venues throught the U.S. and Canada. The initiative was launched prior to the Labor Day holiday, and transportation on the flights operated by Northeast, was primarily subsidized by annoymous donations from some of Hollywood's entertainment elite.
"Basically... this was a social call to duty from some of Hollywood's more prominent benefactors that merely wanted to do the right thing, by giving back to those in need during the holidays..."
The cargo's were all destined to various locations in two troubled spots in the world, and were intentionally kept out of public awareness in order to avoid any attempts of piracy, once these flights reached there destinations.
The last flight departed Chicago's O'Hare Airport earlier today ahead of the severe weather system that was moving into the midwest, with it's final destination slated for Nairobi, Kenya in time for distribution to various parties awaiting the parcels for Christmas.
All of the operational crews manning these flights have choosen to donate their time, with prepaid return tickets in each of their pockets, assuring them expediant arrivals back home to the U.S. for Christmas with their families.
We appreciate the all hands effort that went into this evolution, and we wanted to just focus on the core mission before the task was shared publically.
