At least 750 deserving kids and families will have a special surprise under the tree this year, or maybe next to the tree. For the 16th year, Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines Technical Operations team bought and assembled hundreds of bicycles to donate to Marine Toys for Tots. Employees raised over $40,000 to buy the bikes and donated more than 1,300 toys to give much-needed holiday cheer to metro Atlanta, Georgia, kids.
"While the pandemic prohibited the normal gathering of employees for the presentation of the bikes, the spirit of giving still shone through as the bikes were delivered to the Marines and onto trucks to be provided to Atlanta children," said a Delta official. And parents won't even have to deal with assembling the bike late at night on Christmas Eve!
