A helicopter landed Monday at the Duluth Heritage Sports Center with people dressed in Santa hats.
Although there were no reindeer involved, it was a very special delivery for a Northland family.
Cathy Jewett and her young sons received a laptop computer to send to her son Leo, who is serving in Iraq. Jewett says Leo’s computer overseas broke down. So Lake Superior Helicopter and Computer Renaissance teamed up to donate a new one to him, complete with a Skype program installed on it.
“It means we can keep in contact with him,” Jewett said. “And with the Skype program we can see him and hear him, too, which means a lot to my boys.”
It all came as a surprise to her other boys, who were taken to the Sports Center after school to see the delivery. The computer will be shipped to Iraq today.
