Banyan Gives Back
Banyan recognizes the importance of giving back to the community. By sharing our blessings, we can make a difference in the lives of others.
Throughout the year, Banyan contributes to a number of various causes that individual teammates are passionate about. Whether it is a 5K run for a charity or the sponsoring of a softball team, the company is proud to recognize the efforts of our individual teammates and helps with a donation.
In the spring of 2010 our teammates decided to select a corporate charity that the whole company could rally around. After a great deal of consideration and research, 4Kids of South Florida was picked as the corporate charity. Since then our team has been very involved and supports the organization with regular monetary donations, in-kind donations of needed items, and volunteering for special projects. Our team believes that our involvement with 4Kids of South Florida provides kids with “wings of hope.”
Banyan’s focus on helping others extends beyond our local community to Egbe Hospital in Nigeria. Egbe Hospital was founded in 1952 by SIM (Serving in Mission, a non-denominational Protestant mission) led by missionaries Dr. and Mrs. Campion, the parents of Banyan’s President, Don Campion. Working alongside SIM USA and Samaritan Purse/World Medical Mission, Banyan is dedicated to this revitalization project.
After the devastating earthquake in January 2010, businesses, pilots and other volunteers donated their time, aircraft and funds to fly in desperately needed food, medical personnel and supplies. Banyan was proud to be a scheduling center and departure point for this air bridge to Haiti.
"At Banyan we strive to be more than just another aviation company, not only by what we provide our customers, but also by what we give back."
