Pilots from Sioux Falls visit Avera and Sanford Children's Hospitals and spread some holiday cheer

Last updated 1 week ago

Airline pilots from Delta, UPS, Skywest and United visited both Avera and Sanford Children's Hospitals in Sioux Falls to meet with the kids and spread some Christmas cheer. Paul Dokken (Delta), Lisa Strohchein (UPS), Aaron Svec (Skywest), Casey Delaney (United), and Mark Carolyn (United) donned uniforms and had the chance to spend their day off bringing over $1000 worth of gifts including stuffed animals, toys, games and pilot wings to the kids. Fun was shared by all and of course some flying stories were shared with the kids and their families. The ultimate goal was to bring a smile to the face of the kids but the experience was equally as rewarding for the pilots. Many of these children will be unable spend Christmas at home and the pilots were able to give them a couple gifts to lift their spirits during the holiday season. The Pilots for Kids FSD group have been spreading cheer to kids at Children's hospitals in Sioux Falls since 2012.

Christmas In July for Kids at Avera McKennan Hospital in Sioux Falls

Last updated 10 months ago

Breaking a bit from tradition, several pilots from FSD decided to bring a little “Christmas in July” for kids hospitalized at Avera McKennan Hospital and University Health Center in July last year (2016) instead of December. Among those pilots volunteering their time were Chris Rossing and Paul Dokken of Delta Air Lines and Casey Delany from United Airlines. Chris Rossing’s daughter Annabelle also lent a hand by helping to hand out toys and games to some of the children and their families at Avera. All-in-all it was a very fun and rewarding day to help bring a smile to kids needing one.
