Donation Finds Many Homes

Partners in the Angel Flight NE bag donation

This spring Angel Flight NE, a nonprofit that schedules free air transportation for children and adults requiring specialized medical care outside of their geographic area, reached out to Friends of Children with a unique and generous offer.

They had more than 1,000 new cloth satchel bags that they no longer needed. Instead of discarding them, Angel Flight NE wanted to donate the bags to nonprofits that would benefit from them. While Friends could not use the entire donation, these bags found homes with the Northampton Survival Center and Cathedral in the Night where they will be put to great use. Thanks to Reverend Michael McSherry, Edwards Church for helping us pick the bags up from North Andover and to Angel Flight NE for this amazing donation. We are a community of many needs, and it’s great that we can support one another.
