Southwest Airlines Community

Southwest and Ronald McDonald House

New Arrival

At a recent Corporate Culture Committee quarterly meeting, Ann Hancock, Manager Special Events and 30-year Southwest Employee, and Captain Dick East, retired, tell the story of how Southwest Airlines began its association with Ronald McDonald House.

As with so many things at Southwest, this now-historic corporate/charity union was the result of an Employee just looking for a way to give back to his community.

This was part of what we call a "Rocking Chair" event ... a group of long-time Employees, active and retired, just sitting together and talking about the history of our Company.
