St. Louis, MO: May 11, 2018 – As part of its commitment to the mission of being in service to others, Air Choice One recently held a month-long contest on its Facebook page inviting the Ft. Dodge community to vote for its favorite local non-profit to receive a $1,000 donation from the airline. Thousands of votes were cast, with Community & Family Resources receiving the most votes. Air Choice One will present the organization with a check on May 30th at 2:30 p.m at Community & Family Resources, located at 726 South 17th Street.
“In 2017, we launched this ongoing non-profit initiative as a way to give back to the markets we serve, and get the community involved in telling us which causes they were most passionate about,” said Shane Storz, Air Choice One CEO. “We’ve been excited with the feedback and community engagement in supporting all of the non-profits that were part of the voting to receive this $1,000 donation, and look forward to future community partnerships in Ft. Dodge.”
Other Ft. Dodge organizations that were part of the Facebook voting included Athletics for Education and Success, the Domestic / Sexual Assault Outreach Center, Children & Families of Iowa, and Linking Families & Communities.
Air Choice One CEO Shane Storz will be on hand to present the check to Community & Family Resources on May 30th. Executive Director, Michelle De La Riva will represent the organization to receive the donation. Also in attendance will be Fort Dodge Mayor Matt Bemrich, Fort Dodge Regional Airport Director, Rhonda Chambers, along with members of the airport board, and members of the Greater Fort Dodge Growth Alliance.
The next check stop for Air Choice One is Mason City, Iowa, where voting is currently underway on the Air Choice One Facebook page. Voting in Mason City ends on May 31st, and the charity winner of the $1,000 donation will be announced in June.
