THE KIWIS and WINGS
As you can imagine, being a Kiwi is great fun.
But we're serious too, serious about helping others.
The Kiwi Club has been involved in endeavors, both locally and nationally, for charities since beginning in 1952.
The WINGS Foundation was organized to provide urgent and critical financial support to American Airlines flight attendants who find themselves in need due to illness or tragic circumstance. In many cases, recipients of Wings assistance have used funds for such basic needs as food, housing, and medicine.
In 1996, The Kiwi Club chose to support the Wings Foundation as its National Endeavor.
Almost $600,000.00 has been donated to Wings, as of May 1, 2020.
Because of the background of our membership, our relationship with Wings is a special one.
Through its involvement with Wings, The Kiwi Club is making a positive difference in the lives of many. We are proud to assist this organization. It is administered by American Airlines flight attendant volunteers and virtually all proceeds are distributed to those in need - a remarkable achievement.
We are united in our efforts to support American Airlines flight attendants through our involvement with the Wings Foundation.
