“We truly trust it is our duty to give back and one of the most ideal ways we can give back is through air travel,” said Debra Benton, Southwest’s chief of group relations and altruistic giving. “This is a populace that truly needs assistance. They connected with us and we needed to ensure we were helping them.”
Southwest reported Thursday it’s joining forces with 75 doctor’s facilities and therapeutic associations to convey the free tickets to their patients who are heading out to get mind.
That rundown of accomplices incorporates 10 Texas healing facilities, including the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, UT Southwestern Medical Center, Children’s Medical Center Dallas, Cook Children’s Medical Center and Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children.
Southwest apportions clumps of tickets to every association, which is then in charge of disseminating them to patients and their guardians.
