2023 Pack the Plane Food Drive
Pack the Plane Food Drive - November 15- December 15, 2023
A popular annual tradition, the “Pack the Plane” food drive engages employees from all over the system. This year, in our 14th installment, we’re committed to our most successful campaign yet. This year’s food drive runs from Nov. 15-Dec. 15.
Pack the Plane first began in 2009 after stations across our network came together to host a food drive where they “virtually” filled an entire plane with donated canned goods and then donated those goods to local food banks. This effort grew over time to eventually include partnerships with local food banks as well as online donations and volunteering. Over the past ten years we’ve raised over $1M and donated more than 86,000 pounds of canned goods to food banks across the country.
Last year, during our 14th annual "Pack the Plane" food drive, Alaska and Horizon employees packed the equivalent of more than 37 cargo planes. Working together, we raised more than $171,000 in financial donations and collected 6,400 pounds of canned goods for local food banks, providing almost one million meals to those facing food insecurities. In 2023, let's rise again to the challenge and give back what we are able. Whether it's making an online donation, bringing in canned goods, or volunteering at a food bank, let's show our kind-heartedness and CARE for our communities!
