Sikorsky Presents Check to Make-A-Wish Foundation
Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin company, presents a check for $10,000 to the Make-A-Wish® Foundation. Sikorsky president, Dan Schultz, presented president and CEO of Make-A-Wish Connecticut, Pamela Keough, with the donation from funds raised by the Sikorsky Air Fire Department from T-shirt sales over the 2018 holiday season.
Make-A-Wish fulfills life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. It is on a quest to bring every eligible child’s wish to life, because a wish can be an integral part of a child’s treatment journey. Research shows that the wishes granted can help children build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a critical illness.
Sikorsky participated in its first Make-A-Wish event in 2018 when it partnered with the organization to provide a “Pilot for a Day” experience to a six-year-old boy with a rare heart defect. The child and his family toured Sikorsky’s headquarters in Stratford, CT, and flew in a Sikorsky S-76® helicopter.
