Southwest is committed not only to improving our customer experience but also improving the Community. Which is why we are introducing Community Days! On a regular basis, we will be picking a Local or National Charity that helps people in the Community and donate a portion of our sales to them.

 

But we need your help! The more orders placed and the more money spent on Community Days, the more money that Charity will receive. So make sure to sign up for our Newsletter (at the bottom of our homepage or by contacting your sales rep) and follow our social media pages (Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin) in order to be notified when our next Community Day is.

 

Our First Community Day will be held on April 22nd and will be supporting Tree Canada and Nature Conservancy of Canada.
