The children featured in our photographs were shot by the incredible talent of Jennifer Garutti. Jennifer was able to capture beautifully what the mission of Angels Take Flight is in a glorious and visual way. She is a true visionary, and an angel in our own community.
7-Eleven of Springfield, Massachusetts
Since our first 5K race in 2012, Scott from the 7-Eleven in Springfield has brought his crew out to support our runners, volunteers, and supporters! We are incredibly thankful for his support! They are consistently there for us – rain or shine, warm weather or cold supplying delicious refreshments and nourishment to us! In addition, the 7-Eleven in Springfield hosts an annual party in our honor. Usually held in the summer, the party features community members enjoying free food and slurpees! Thank Heaven for 7-Eleven!!!
Pioneer Valley AAA – A huge THANK YOU to the Pioneer Valley AAA who ran a luggage drive for the children of the community! Community members were able to drop off new and like new luggage. Thank you, AAA, for opening your hearts (and your space) up to us! The offices that participated were in Springfield, West Springfield, Hadley, West Springfield, and Greenfield! For each piece of luggage donated, members received a 20% off coupon for a brand new piece of luggage from AAA. In addition, for each AAA Member Rewards Visa Card application processed at AAA Pioneer Valley through this time, the AAA donated a brand new rolling carryon bag to Angels Take Flight! Visit any of the AAA locations in the Pioneer Valley today!
January 2017 – We are so blessed to once again be a recipient of the Annual Catholic Appeal through the Diocese of Springfield, Massachusetts! Two years ago, we were able to film a commercial and interview with the Catholic Diocese and we are still receiving positive feedback from it. The article that was written about us in the Catholic Mirror Magazine makes us so proud, and we received a plethora of luggage donations from the write up! We are so thankful!
