Angel Flight for Victory Junction Camper from Delaware

Recently, Eric Perdew, club member and one of our Rotary/Angel Flight volunteer pilots, and club member Randy White teamed up to fly a 15-year-old patient with rheumatoid arthritis home to Delaware following her free week at the Victory Junction camp. Her mom expressed gratitude to Greensboro Rotary and Angel Flight for the air transportation assistance we provided at no cost in bringing their daughter back safely. The drive typically would have been very uncomfortable for her, involving an 8-10 hour trip.

Donations from the Greensboro Rotary Club Foundation are used by our volunteer pilot team to provide the fuel for their private planes used on Angel Flight missions, enabling them to aid people in need through our club’s support and community service. The flights by Greensboro Rotary’s pilots benefit chronically ill children, adults, and military veterans by making available free air transportation to/from their specialized medical appointments and for reasons of compassion. Club members wishing to experience one of our Angel Flight missions are invited to fly along by contacting Eric or Warren.
