It is important to us to give back to the community and raise awareness about causes we believe in. Paradies Lagardère participates in a wide variety of events in communities throughout the year. We are always looking for new ways to help and believe in making a positive difference in the lives of our employees, business partners and customers.
Our community is coast to coast.
A Platinum partner of Make-A-Wish® since 2004, Paradies Lagardère helps grant wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions across North America through a variety of initiatives. We’ve raised money for the cause, donated items for kids to use during their travels, and had the honor of granting several special wishes, including a trip to the moon via virtual reality, and a vacation to Greece.
No Kid Hungry®
Throughout the year, Paradies Lagardère donates 25 percent from every kid’s meal sold to support No Kid Hungry. Paradies Lagardère also participates in the annual ‘Dine Out For No Kid Hungry,’ a national event in September.
Cristo Rey Atlanta Jesuit High School
The Corporate Work Study Program
Paradies Lagardère is one of more than 150 metro Atlanta companies that partner with the high school and its Corporate Work Study Program. Through the program, Cristo Rey Atlanta students work five full days a month, allowing the students to fund their educations, gain job experience, and realize the relevance of their education.
Treat Our Troops
Paradies Lagardère’s customers donated 1 million items of need in 2018 to our military service men and women around the globe through the Treat Our Troops program. Paradies Lagardère’s Treat Our Troops program provides travelers and both airline and airport employees the opportunity to purchase much needed goods for military personnel overseas. These goods are then distributed by the USO and other military service organizations.
For the past two years, Paradies Lagardère has donated a portion of the sales from the stores in its 13 airports throughout Canada to honor veterans for Remembrance Day, which benefits the Royal Canadian Legion’s Poppy Trust Fund.
