Angel Flight NE Receives Donation from People's United Bank
Addressing vital need for patients to access long-distance medical care with free air transportation support services.
By: Angel Flight NE
For more than 25 years, Angel Flight NE (AFNE) has made a strong commitment and investment into New England Communities and well beyond. For this reason and many more, People's United Bank is supporting AFNE's mission with the goal of investing in the financial health of members within the communities that each organization serves.
People's United Bank's donation will enable Angel Flight NE to coordinate 200 missions/flights for patients and families in crisis and needing free air transportation to access specialized treatment for their specific medical condition.
"We are excited to have the opportunity to support Angel Flight NE and their life-changing mission for residents in need across the communities we serve," said Kirk Walters, SEVP, People's United Bank and 14-year Angel Flight NE volunteer pilot. "I have witnessed first-hand the impact these flights can have for families during what can be a challenging time. Through Angel Flight NE, our hope is that we can ease some of the burden these patients face so they can focus on what matters most, their recovery and family."
"We are honored to have People's United Bank supporting our vital mission," said Fr. Larry Camerlin, President and Founder of Angel Flight NE. "Distance should never be an obstacle to access life-saving medical care. By collaborating and strengthening our shared commitment to the communities we both serve, we will bridge that distance for patients and families in need while transforming lives one flight at a time."
People's United Bank will be recognized as a Gold Wings Sponsor of Angel Flight NE's 25th Anniversary Celebration ~ Evening of Angels Gala taking place on November 12, 2021, at the Seaport Hotel Boston. This is AFNE's largest annual celebration recognizing the accomplishments of the organization and those who have made it possible.
