JFK Airport’s Terminal 4 Operator Donates 400 Backpacks and School Supplies to Local Queens Middle School

Back to Newsroom

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.
