Alaska Airlines Draws a Winner

Posted: Updated:

"Well today was the culmination of a months worth coming along side Toys for Tots and we were supporting them this year with a donation by Alaska Airlines of 4 round trip tickets anywhere Alaska Airlines fly," says Customer Service Manager at Horizon Air, Larry Gooldy.

This year Alaska Airlines teamed up with Toys for Tots here in Montana to add some extra thanks to those who had donated a toy this year.

"Well we have this idea in September and Alaska Airlines is very big into rewarding the communities that we serve and we wanted to service the state of Montana with an organization a group that was reaching out to all the folks that we essentially serve within Montana and Toys for Tots was brought up. So we came along side Toys for Tots actually way back in July and proposed the idea to them that we wanted to help support them this year and their campaign for getting toys in the hands of Montana kids, and we wanted to essentially fill an airplane up with toys which as you can tell behind us today we were very successful in doing that," says Gooldy.

For the Great Falls Toys for Tots it has been quite a toy gathering season but they are still not quite to their goal just yet.

"Yeah we had a lot of money donations, our toy donations were way down this year, so having that money helped immensely that we are able to shop," says Marylou Brewster.

Helping Toys for Tots out this weekend was a group of kids who gave up their weekend to help make other kids Christmas a little brighter.

"You put the kids out there their experts you know. When you get a kid 10 to 12 boy and ask him to shop for that age group he knows exactly what those kids want for Christmas. So I think it helps a lot to get kids something that they will never use you know if your going to spend the money and get them a gift lets get them something they want," explains Brewster.

With some big help Alaska Airlines and toys for tots drew their lucky winner.

"Well the big winner we just drew today and Charlie drew that and that was Kerry Johnson out of Clancy Montana," says Gooldy.
