UPDATE: Operation Good Cheer 2012

Friday, December 7, 2012 @ 8:00 AM

Operation Good Cheer, an initiative of Child and Family Services of Michigan Inc., works with volunteer pilots to fly Christmas gifts to children in foster care throughout the state.  This past Saturday, December 1st, over 13,000 gifts were delivered to 4,500 children.

Thick fog grounded a number of flying sleighs Saturday, after 100 pilots volunteered.  More than 50 Penske, Meijer and other trucks and 30 flights crisscrossed Michigan to 18 airports across the state, some making multiple trips at their own expense.
