Our crewmembers at the JetBlue University College of Airports recently volunteered to serve breakfast at the Give Kids the World (GKTW) village in Orlando. Give Kids the World is a non-profit organization in central Florida that fulfills the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses and their families from around the world to experience a memorable trip to theme parks like Disney World, Universal, and Sea World – at no cost.
The GKTW village is a 70-acre resort complete with more than 140 villa accommodations, attractions and fun activities designed for children with special needs. The GKTW organization depends on volunteers – called “Angels” – to fulfill nearly 1,400 weekly shifts. From assisting with resort operations and entertainment programs, the volunteers are critical in ensuring that the families have a great experience.
