Nelson Pilots Association flies for Our Daily Bread

The Nelson Pilots Association actively appreciates the importance of charitable organizations and social services in our community.

At a recent meeting of the Nelson Pilots Association

The Nelson Pilots Association actively appreciates the importance of charitable organizations and social services in our community.

This past July 1, Nelson pilots Don MacKinnon, Case Grypma, and Cal Laybourne donated their time, airplanes, and fuel to provide sight-seeing rides to the public in exchange for charitable donations.  This is a common undertaking by the association.

At its regular monthly meeting, Pastor Jim Reimer of Kootenay Christian Fellowship visited the pilots to describe the Our Daily Bread program. Besides serving wholesome and reasonably priced daily meals in a comfortable and loving place, Our Daily Bread also provides life skills coaching as well as referrals for short-term jobs.

Pastor Jim accepted the proceeds for the July charity flights. Asked what else organizations like the NPA could do for Our Daily Bread, Pastor Jim indicated that while cash donations are always welcome and appreciated, there is a strong need for volunteers as well as opportunities for odd job-type work.
