Testimonials

From our colleagues

“I received my flood check and I really can't thank you enough!  It sure did come at a time of need!! A million THANK YOUs to you and Wings!  I have always been a big supporter of Wings, but now I can personally testify to their true compassion at a person's time of need!! Thank you again! I hope I am blessed to meet you someday -- Have a great LIFE!!”

“I was very touched by your caring heart and compassion. You are a beautiful soul. Your loving and encouraging words and kind action gave me hope, strength, and peace. It's so comforting to know that there are people like you out there, willing to listen and help. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your time and kindness. I will forever be grateful to you and to the Flight Attendant Disaster Relief Program, and I will always remember you and what you did.”

I must once again thank Krichelle and all my fellow flight attendants who so graciously volunteer their time to be a part of the Wings Foundation. Though our expenses from the crane incident continue to mount to this day, the financial relief we received from Wings Foundation has helped provide us with the peace of mind that comes from more financial security. But most significantly, we have the peace of mind in knowing that there are those who will care for you in your time of need, and that feeling is unquantifiable.
