Collings Foundation

WWII Veteran, Battle of the Bulge survivor and good friend of the Collings Foundation, Dr. John McAuliffe has passed away. When we think of what is good, kind, thoughtful and hard working, we think of John. In his obituary his family wrote: "In lieu of flowers, as a tribute to John's goodness, his family suggests that you take someone you love to lunch or dinner and let them know that you love them." (that is just the way John was) In honor of John, we suggest you do that. ...

Beautiful snowy morning here at the Foundation. ...

Hi there everyone -
We just put up a bunch of gifts in our online store for the holidays. Some nice stocking stuffers and great variety of Cobi building block toys. Proceeds help the Collings Foundation. Good Health and Happiness To All!

Collings Foundation

Hi there everyone -
Hunter here - I am in the process of putting together an article on all the wonderful volunteers who help with the Wings of Freedom tour and all CF activities. Looking for a a couple good photos to use. Do you have a favorite volunteer photo? Send it to me! email: hchaney@collingsfoundation.org
(just one please) Have a good weekend!
...

Plainly put, the Collings Foundation would not exist without the dedicated help of our volunteers. Whether they are “manning” the PX as a part of the nationwide bomber tour, turning wrenches on one of our many planes, maintaining support equipment for airplanes such as the F-4, or answering the phones and pushing papers in the office; their time and talents are the treasure that keeps the Foundation going.

Every time a Collings Foundation engine is heard overhead, remember that it is there because of the thousands of hours our volunteers put in throughout the year. Like the dedicated crews in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam, they stand-by and support the aircraft without complaint.

We extend a heart-felt thank you to all of our volunteers.

We are always looking for volunteers to help. Below are some of our volunteer opportunities that you may be able to help with:

  • Become a local tour stop coordinator, or help a coordinator on a B-17 and B-24 tour stop in your local area.
  • The Collings Foundation Houston, TX base is continually looking for people to help support the many restorations and aircraft that they care for. If you are interested, please contact Rick Harris.
  • Limited slots for volunteers on the B-17 and B-24 tour are available. Please email your interest to info@collingsfoundation.org with a brief introduction and list of skills.
  • The Stow, MA Headquarters of the Collings Foundation has some volunteer slots available on a limited basis, please email us at info@collingsfoundation.org for information.
