OKC tornado fund to assist aviation community victims

In the face of a frightening afternoon across the Oklahoma City region, while a massive killer tornado was ripping through their homes, the folks at AIC Title Service were continuing to solve problems for aircraft owners that were depending on them.

By the end of the day, the full scope of what had happened began to settle over them. Several of the staff and escrow agents had lost portions of their homes, or had relatives wiped out. Others took in friends that lost everything.

Their world is normally one of taking chaos and making it streamlined – corralling loose ends and details and making our aircraft buying and selling transactions a miracle of competence.

Today, their personal lives are utterly disrupted.

The story is the same for people at other escrow and title companies in OKC, for workers at the FAA or aviation companies in the area – FBOs, airport staff and others.

The friends we depend on at aviation firms in OKC need our help!

The OKC Aviation Community Fund will donate all monies received through June 1, 2013, directly to the victims who are a part of the aviation community. “The generosity of the aviation community is amazing,” adds Robin Eissler, Sky Hope Network Founder and President. “Now, it’s time to give back to this incredible community and help our friends in need. If you have ever bought or sold an airplane, you have worked with these professionals in Oklahoma City, and now it’s our turn to support them.”

The fund is being managed by Sky Hope Network – a business aviation non-profit that responds to crisis and disasters with aviation resources. Sky Hope will lead the effort to provide direct and immediate assistance to those aviation industry workers that need assistance. With the larger relief response underway on the ground in the region, the fund allows us to take care of our own during this disaster.

Donations can be made via www.sky-hope.org or by mail at: Sky Hope Network, PO Box 1459, Georgetown, TX 78627. Please contact Sky Hope Network directly at 561-714-3070 for large donations.

Any amount will add up as we work together to help our aviation community. PLEASE DONATE NOW!
