❄ LET IT SNOW RESULTS 2018 ❄
Unfortunately it did not snow on Christmas Day at the Portland International Jetport. We appreciate our customers and communities for playing along with us and adding a little extra excitement to the holiday season. Together, we raised $10,000 for local organizations (Make-A-Wish Maine, The Bath Area Food Bank, and SENH Habitat for Humanity), donated $8,000 to Coats for Kids, and collected countless coats for the program.
Thank you for inviting Springer's to be a part of life's special moments, for a wonderful year, and an incredible holiday season.
