As Cynthia Vavueta waited with her 4-year-old daughter for Santa to arrive at the airport, she said the Santa flight very exciting for her three children because this is the first year Santa has come to their school.

“They couldn’t sleep last night talking about it,” Vavueta said.

The Deseret News:

Fifteen volunteer pilots of the Utah Wing of Angel Flight West departed South Valley Regional Airport on their annual Santa Flight. Their destination was Cedar City, to deliver toys, school supplies, books, backpacks and warm clothing to the nearly 600 children at East Elementary.

Congratulations to the members of the Utah Wing!
