JFKIAT, the operator of Terminal 4 at John F. Kennedy International Airport, recently donated 400 backpacks to the students of M.S. 226 – Virgil I. Grissom. Members of JFKIAT’s executive team joined M.S. 226 students to celebrate the school’s longstanding relationship with JFKIAT. 

In addition to the 400 backpacks that JFKIAT provided, the company also hosted a back-to-school drive throughout Terminal 4 in August where JFKIAT employees donated calculators, pencils, folders and many other items that students would need for the school year. The donation is a part of JFKIAT’s broader corporate philanthropy program for Terminal 4, 4GOOD, which aims to promote educational and professional success in the community. JFKIAT has previously donated computers, cameras to the school’s photography program, and displayed the M.S. 226 students’ artwork in the Arrivals Hall at Terminal 4. JFKIAT also recently participated in a Young Women’s Leadership panel to discuss career paths with students.

“At JFKIAT, we are proud to serve the Queens community through our 4GOOD program and deepen our relationship within our surrounding neighborhood,” said Roel Huinink, JFKIAT President and CEO. “JFKIAT is happy to show support and help students of M.S. 226 with school supplies and backpacks as they embark on the new school year.”
