During the holiday season our crewmembers work to light up lives across our network with Together We Rise – a nonprofit dedicated to improving the lives of children moving through the foster care system. This year, we have decorated more than 2,000 Sweet Cases to donate to children who will move to three different locations before they receive their permanent placement. Giving them bags that are lovingly decorated by our crewmembers provides children in foster care with a sense of digity and empowerment because they are now able to move their belongings in a duffle bag instead of a trash bag. This one small change is something that helps us light up lives in the communities we serve.
In Orlando, Crewmembers invited children from age 4 to 17 to have a JetBlue University experience that included piloting a flight simulator, learning how to guide a plane and understanding airport operations.
In San Juan, PR crewmembers made sure the children received their super sweet cases just in time for Christmas at the Hogar Cuna San Cristobal.
Our crew in STI, delivered sweet cases with the help of some of the kids’ favorite character to the local children’s hospital.
