Dave Brooks, president of AA Cargo said, “We extend special thanks to DHL Express for their very generous support and cooperation, not only on this mission, but on other missions in which we have partnered with great success.”
Last July, AA Cargo employees raised money through the “Kick-Start a Dream” program to purchase more than 1,100 soccer balls to send to U.S. Marines in Afghanistan via DHL Express. The Marines distributed the balls to Afghan children.
In a related move, DHL again has joined with the New York community to deliver hundreds of holiday trees, decorations and messages of support to U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
New York businesses and community organizations including Dee’s Nursery, Adelis International Security, Adopt-a-Soldier Platoon, Proctor-Hopson and Post 1896 Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) have donated 500 fully decorated trees and “Santa Sacks” filled with thousands of holiday cards written by local school children that will be shipped free of charge by DHL.
