East Brunswick, NJ, July 26, 2011 - Through its "Showing LUV to our Communities for 40 Years Contest," Southwest Airlines has awarded Home Front Hearts, a 501(c)(3) non-profit that serves military families in need, 40 roundtrip airline tickets.
We're so excited to be one of the grand prize winners," said Randi Cairns, Founder/Executive Director of Home Front Hearts. "Home Front Hearts is very grateful that Southwest Airlines has provided us this opportunity to assist many more military families in need."
Home Front Hearts will use the 40 roundtrip tickets to honor the service of military families by providing eligible military families the opportunity to visit their wounded warriors in hospital locations far from home, allow military spouses to visit family for respite during deployment, visit extended family for celebrations, illnesses, or deaths, and connect family members with service members located in cities across the country.
After reading Home Front Hearts' entry, it was clear to Southwest Airlines that Home Front Hearts is "making a positive impact on its community and was proud to provide them the opportunity to spread their wings and achieve its mission."
The "Showing LUV to our Communities for 40 Years Contest" was announced by Southwest to honor their 40th anniversary to spread the LUV even further to the communities they serve.
