KF Aerospace had a busy year, and it has finished off 2022 by helping as many people as possible.

The KF Christmas Tree Project raised $30,000 for 25 families in need across the country, helping out in the cities where the company does business.

Several KF Aerospace teams were given a reusable Christmas tree, a prepaid credit card and a special task: to find a local family in need and trim the tree with gifts and goods on their wish lists. They worked with local charities to find those who could use a little holiday lift.

It started out as a $6,000 fund and grew to a value of $30,000, which helped KF employees put on their Santa hats and deliver lots of goodies to families in Kelowna, Vancouver, Hamilton and Portage la Prairie, Man.

The charitable initiative caps off a year in which the company opened the KF Centre for Excellence at Kelowna International Airport and also launched its own passenger charter service, Aeroflyer.

Some of the Okanagan charities that played a role in the project were All Are Family Outreach Program, SHARE Society, Mamas for Mamas, Elizabeth Fry Society, Project Literacy, Now Canada Society and Kelowna Stands With Ukraine Association.
