“Our culture of caring extends beyond our passengers, aircraft and our airports, and into the community at large. We try to put our ideas into actions though community programs such as #TropicGivesBack,” Tropic Air’s President, John Greif III said.
“The dedication and many talents of our staff are the foundation of our success as an airline. Tropic is proud to be able to help our staff share that dedication and talent with the people in the communities we call home,” Tropic’s CEO, Steve Schulte, added.
Under the #TropicGivesBack program, for every ticket bought at the month’s selected station, $1 is donated to an organization chosen by the staff from that community. In February, $400 was donated to Arms of Love in Caye Caulker. March was the chosen month for Belmopan. San Ignacio has been chosen for April and Punta Gorda chosen for May.
