An Outpouring of Love

On Veterans Day we celebrate our veterans and the sacrifice they make so that we can have the freedoms that we enjoy. Long Beach Airport and The Paradies Shops have been working together in order to provide some small comfort for our veterans.

LGB and Paradies Shops have experienced an outpouring of love toward our veteran community through the "Treat Our Troops" program, which allows LGB travelers to show how much they care about our veterans.

The ongoing program benefits the Veteran's Hospital and is funded by travelers. Travelers are able to buy items from the Paradies Shops here at LGB to create care packages to send to veterans in need. Paradies Shops staff then delivers weekly packages personally to the Vetern's Hospital, an experience they describe as an honor. And LGB travelers give quite frequently. On a slow morning shift, recently one employee said she had already received more than ten donations. We appreciate our veterans service and are grateful for Paradies Shops in their effort to bringing a bit of happiness into the lives of those who fight for us.
