For many, the Thanksgiving holiday was a long weekend, filled with family, food, football and shopping. However, many GoJet employees, including pilots, flight attendants, mechanics, and those in Systems Operations Control (SOC), sacrificed Thanksgiving with their families to make sure that our passengers arrived at their holiday destinations safely.
Our SOC employees celebrated Thanksgiving in the office, with an incredible spread from Mimi’s Cafe. The feast offered something for all appetites, including a wide variety of vegan offerings.
But the restaurant’s delicious and extensive menu was just part of the reason why the SOC chose Mimi’s to cater their holiday dinner. Mimi’s relationship with the Children’s Hunger Fund was what sealed the deal. “We found out that for every order placed, Mimi’s would donate a meal to the Children’s Hunger Fund,” explained Heather Brown, who coordinated the meal. “Our order resulted in the donation of 16 meals to children in need.”
The SOC is keeping that same spirit of giving rolling into December, with a toy drive benefiting Toys for Tots.
