JetBlue Airways launched its ninth annual “Light Up A Life” campaign in Portland with the distribution of ‘sweet cases’ to children in Spurwink’s Treatment Foster Care Program on January 14th at the Portland International Jetport.
“Spurwink is incredibly honored and grateful to be chosen as a JetBlue ‘Light Up A Life’ Partner again this year,” states Kristen Farnham, Spurwink’s Vice President of Development. “The 24 new duffle bags will bring comfort to children in the midst of transition in our Treatment Foster Care program; they represent the community of people working to support children in need in Maine.”
The airline’s Light Up A Life campaign provides resources and support to children in foster care. Working in conjunction with non-profit foundation Together We Rise, JetBlue employees purchase, decorate, fill duffle bags—called “sweet cases”— with a coloring book, crayons, a blanket, a Pillow Pet, and hygiene items.
