Southwest Airlines strives to be the hometown carrier that cares in all 72 cities we serve across 37 states. Tuesday, the airline wrapped up an exciting 1,600 ticket giveaway in honor of Southwest’s 40th anniversary.
Five weeks ago, Southwest Airlines put out a call for contest entries: nonprofit organizations focused on education, diversity, military, environment, and families facing serious illnesses had the chance to share their compelling stories and photos to explain how 40 roundtrip tickets would help them achieve their missions in the community. 40 organizations were selected as winners.
Tuesday, Southwest Airlines announced the final 10 winning nonprofits:
Colorado I Have a Dream Foundation; Denver, CO
Groundwork San Diego Chollas Creek; San Diego, CA
Louie's Kids; Charleston, SC
Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE); New York, NY
Service Employment Redevelopment (SER) Jobs for Progress National, Inc.; Irving, TX
Soles4Souls; Nashville, TN
