Giving back to the communities where we do business is central to the DNA of Atlas Air Worldwide and a huge source of pride and joy for our company. Over the past few weeks, we have had the opportunity to give back to our community and use our resources to say thank you to those who are doing so much for us.
Following the recent launch of Atlas Acts of Kindness, the Company made a donation to Covenant House in New York City. For over 40 years Covenant House has remained committed to the life-saving work of serving youth experiencing homelessness. Their shelter and services are especially critical during the current COVID-19 outbreak, and they are doing everything possible to ensure the health and safety of all residents and staff who remain on site. While the rest of the world closed, Covenant House “opened their arms wider to protect youth experiencing homelessness.”
In that same spirit, Covenant House’s annual gala, A Night of Covenant House Stars, will still go on. On May 18 at 8:00 p.m. Eastern, we hope you’ll tune into a one-of-a-kind benefit concert to support COVID-19 relief efforts for homeless, trafficked and at-risk youth, available on a number of streaming platforms, entertainment and social media sites and SmartTVs. To learn more about this incredible event that we are sponsoring, the stars who will be performing, or to make a donation, please visit the event website.
Here at Atlas, we believe one small act of kindness can change a life, and together, we can change the world.
