Volunteers from Piedmont’s headquarters sorted and boxed 14,376 pounds of food for their hungry neighbors in a volunteer event two years in the making.
“When I retired two years ago, American Airlines gave me $100,000 to donate to the charity of my choice and I chose the Maryland Food Bank,” said Steve Farrow, former Piedmont President/CEO. “There are more food-insecure people than you think. The food bank was able to update their facilities and now the Piedmont team is here to volunteer.”

Piedmont captain Matt Sheehan is a big fan of paying it forward. As a child, he was obsessed with airplanes, begging his grandmother to take him to Logan Airport in Boston to watch the airplanes take off and land. As an adult, he gives children in need the gift of flight he longed for as a child.
