This morning, Southwest Airlines donated more than 150,000 blankets and more than 30,000 pillows to the Salvation Army. We delivered a large portion of those blankets and pillows to the Dallas/Fort Worth Command center. Southwest Employees were on hand to help unload and organize the supplies, which will be distributed across the U.S. Today’s donation of new blankets and pillows comes at a time when the Salvation Army, and the people it serves, could use it the most.
With the winter months upon us, we know individuals need these blankets and pillows, and we’re happy to be able to provide them. In addition, Southwest Employees in markets across the U.S. will drop blankets and pillows at their local Salvation Army.
