The Ponca City Aviation Foundation has donated a $500 Walmart gift card to all schools in the district to be used for classroom supplies, clothing or other student needs.

The letter from the Aviation Foundation stated, “Our organization focuses its resources on the youth of Ponca City and the north central Oklahoma region. The money we provide is derived from the fly-in breakfasts we host on the first Saturday of every month at the Ponca City Regional Airport.”

Woodlands principal Tim Williams expressed his appreciation. “Organizations in our community such as the Ponca City Aviation Foundation make a positive impact in students’ lives. We appreciate the Foundation’s commitment to helping students in need. We estimate that at least 75-100 students in our school will receive benefit from their generosity.”

The mission of the Foundation is to help children of the Ponca City area by donating to organizations and efforts that service their goals.
