Our May Mission is “Angel Flight North East”. Angel Flight NE, a 501c3 non-profit organization, and is celebrating 22 years of service to children and adults who need to travel for specialized and life-saving care. In most cases, their financial resources have been depleted due to illness or their immune systems are compromised.
Flights are provided “free of charge” by their 500+ Volunteer Pilots and airline partners for as long and as often the patients require assistance.
The Pilots contribute the fuel and their aircraft, but it costs $300 to put the plane in the air each time. This cost covers flight coordination, scheduling, pilot resource management, flight safety oversight, community outreach and technology.
Since their founding in 1996, they have scheduled more than 77,000 flights. Volunteer Pilots have flown more than 14 Million Miles providing more than 66,000 patients and their families free air transportation to medical care. Their primary service are is the six New England States, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
Please look for the special Mission envelopes in the pews on May 12th and 26th. You may give any time during the month of May, simply mark the memo line of your check, or the envelope if you give cash, with “ANGEL FLIGHT NE” and drop it in the offering plate, mail to the church or drop off during office hours. (Please do not mail cash).
