From our colleagues

I've been a flight attendant for American Airlines for 26 years. In that time I've worked hard and managed my money well. But things happen and I had a botched surgery that devastated me financially! It wasn't until a fellow flight attendant asked if I had looked into Wings for help that I even considered it! I always thought it was for other people! But I became other people and I'm so grateful to this amazing organization for supporting me! I couldn't have survived without them.

C. Carillo

First of all, thank you so much for your help! I had to have a surgery and be out for 8 weeks. I am single and have a mortgage and bills to pay with 1 child in college. Wings Foundation helped me to keep all my payments on time and I did not have to worry about money while I was in bed rest recovering. The process was very easy, but involving a lot of paperwork to make sure the fund is used to the legit candidates. I will continue to donate and support Wings Foundation for my American Airlines family!

Y. Sato Schlueter

As I prepare to return to work I would like to take this time and send my sincere appreciation to you for helping in my and my family time of need.  I'm so very grateful for the family and friends that helped in assisting me but that was sporadic and based on if they could afford to help but the Wings Foundation was without waver and I'm forever grateful.

I thank God for everyone who puts in hard work and effort to keep the Foundation running. May you all continue to be Blessed.
