This aviator piloted the project that raised $1.3 million for charity

In this episode of Business Matters, presented by Valley First, a division of First West Credit Union, host Rob Cupello is joined by Dave McElroy from Give Hope Wings.

McElroy and Hope Air, which provides families from coast to coast with free flights and accommodations, came together in an interesting way.

McElroy was passionate about flying and wanted to raise money for charity on his expeditions. While living off-shore, someone suggested he get in contact with Hope Air. He did, and that was the beginning of Give Hope Wings.

On that first adventure, they raised half a million dollars.

Watch the full episode below to learn about the project that raises hundreds of thousands of dollars for Canadian families in need with each expedition and to hear more about McElroy and his dedication to making a difference.
