PHL flyers can now donate directly to relief efforts in Ukraine

Frequent travelers to Philadelphia can now help the fight in Ukraine.

UNICEF has partnered with OTG, an airport hotel group, to allow travelers to donate to Ukraine directly from airport iPads as well as OTG’s mobile ordering technology.

OTG, a food and beverage company that operates six restaurants at Philadelphia International Airport, will also match up to $100,000 in donations from its airport technologies. All donations will go to the United Nations Children‘s Fund as part of UNICEF’s response to the war in Ukraine.

“We wanted to make it easier for our customers to help those in need, and that’s why we started this initiative,” OTG founder and CEO Rick Blatstein said in a statement. “UNICEF is working day and night to staff essential programs in Ukraine and neighboring countries, providing essential supplies and working with women and children who are still evacuated. UNICEF has an amazing operation and we are proud to support them by making it easy for our customers to give and by giving ourselves.

The initiative, which was implemented last night, is now operational at Newark, LaGuardia, JFK, Philadelphia, Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport and George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston.

PHL Airport could not immediately be reached for comment.
