UPS gives $21,000 to Louisville 'Women in Aviation' chapter

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- UPS wants to help put more women in control while up in the air.

On Thursday, the company presented the local chapter of Women in Aviation with a check for $21,000. The non-profit organization works to encourage women to enter all areas of the aviation field.

Part of the money from UPS will also support the Girls in Aviation Day event. The event helps young girls like 10-year-old Taylor Peeff learn about what it takes to become a pilot.

"I think I'm gonna be -- well, I know I'm gonna be -- a UPS pilot, and I know that I'm gonna be coming here every day to work, and go do what I love," said 10-year-old Taylor Peeff.

The group says it's important to start inspiring girls at an early age to make aviation a career path for them.
