Travelers Aid Arrives in Hartford
Travelers Aid International has won a contract to provide information services at Bradley International Airport, outside Hartford, Conn. Travelers Aid will manage an existing volunteer Ambassador program that operates one information booth. There are currently 50 volunteers at the airport.
During a summer transition period, Travelers Aid will work with the current program manager, RSVP Connecticut. Experienced Travelers Aid program managers will assess the operation and it is hoped a local program manager will be in place in September.
Under the scope of the contract, Travelers Aid will expand the hours of operation, increase the availability and visibility of the Ambassador volunteers and recruit additional volunteers.
Bradley will be the fifth airport program directly operated by Travelers Aid International. The other four include JFK, Newark, Reagan and Dulles. With the addition of Bradley, there are now 18 U.S. airports in the Travelers Aid network.
