Hello PFK SFO friends,
Welcome to our Holiday Donation Drive! I hope this message finds you and your family well this season. We are making our annual push for donations in order to facilitate purchasing toys for the patients at John Muir Hospital Pediatrics in Walnut Creek. As you may have guessed, in person visits are still restricted at the hospital due to the vulnerability the pediatric patients and Covid-19, so we will proceed as we did in 2020 with a Toy Donation consisting of loads of toys, books, activities, art supplies etc. for the children to enjoy during their care. Our donation last year was a huge hit according to our Care Specialist Adriana.
I hope you can join me in making a donation to our cause. Our small gestures really do make a difference for the patients and the difficult situations they finds themselves faced with.
I encourage anyone who is an ***ALASKA AIR GROUP*** employee to donate via the "Alaska Gives” program which will match donations dollar for dollar! (Up to $1000 annually!! Hello FREE MONEY!!)
One time, or recurring donations are accepted via credit cards, PayPal or even payroll deduction. I personally have set up a recurring donation that pulls directly from my paycheck each period. Easy and automatic. Check it out with the following link…(you’ll need your Alaska SSO info to access this site)

2017 - John Muir Medical Center
On December 4th, 2017, we visited John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek. Pilots from Virgin America, United, and Jet Suite delivered toys to over 36 hospitalized children, and left gifts for even more newborns in the ICU. In addition to handing out gifts, pilots delivered balloons and wristbands. The children were so excited to see our volunteers, and the gifts left behind for the newborns were given to their parents who may have not yet had a chance to give their child a gift.
2017 - Compass Clara House Visit
On December 1st, 2017, a small group of pilots delivered gifts and visited with the resident children of Compass Clara House.
