Snowball Express and American Airlines Bring Holiday Cheer to Gold Star Families

Published on : Saturday, December 9, 2017

download“This event is a favorite among the American team and I am proud to work with so many generous colleagues, not only those who have donated their time to fly and serve the families in the air,

 

but those who have spent countless hours coordinating gate-side sendoffs in scores of airports around our system and arranging a first class arrival into DFW tomorrow morning for the 12th consecutive year,” said David Seymour, senior vice president – Integrated Operations at American and graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point. “Snowball Express is an impressive event that continues to grow every year and it is our deep privilege to partner with them to honoring our Gold Star families.”

 

 

American Airlines team members volunteer their time in a variety of ways, including hosting special send-off celebrations at each of the departure airports, staffing the flights, assisting with activities, “decking the gates” with holiday decorations and providing refreshments and entertainment — all to make sure the Snowball Express families have an unforgettable experience each year.

 

 

“I’ve served as the Team Airlift coordinator for five years working with our pilots, flight attendants, gate agents and countless others to serve our Gold Star families,” said Jeff Graham, Airlift Coordinator and DFW-based First Officer at American. “Serving each of them is a privilege that we take on with love, compassion and pride.”

 

 

Snowball Express is a nonprofit organization established in 2006 with the mission of bringing hope and new memories to the children of military heroes who have died while on active duty since Sept. 11, 2001.
