Angel MedFlight Worldwide Air Ambulance Services is committed to using its expertise in healthcare and compassionate medical services to give back to the community whenever possible. This past weekend, Angel MedFlight was on-site at the HOPE worldwide Carnival for Homeless Children in Phoenix, AZ.
The carnival is a chance to bring together needy children with local community members under a banner of togetherness, understanding and joy.
The event was held at the largest school for homeless children in the United States, Children First Academy. The school provides hope for approximately 300 students and their families, who live at the poverty line or are homeless. Children First Academy provides the necessities, care and attention these children and their families need to live safe and healthy lives.
More than 700 homeless people showed up for the event, while around 350 volunteers from a variety of backgrounds worked closely with attendees to ensure each had a day full of experiences to remember. Among the volunteers were Arizona State University football players, the Globe Trotters, a real-life superhero team called the Arizona Avengers, hygienists and Angel MedFlight Worldwide Air Ambulance Services representatives.
Throughout the day children ran back and forth with joy and contentment. There were dunk tanks, an obstacle course, concession stands and lots of carnival-themed games. Children regularly stopped by the Angel MedFlight stand for free candy and, if needed, a bandage. For those instances where first aid might be needed, Darren Thenell, critical care flight paramedic was on hand to provide expert medical care.
Angel MedFlight Worldwide Air Ambulance Services is the premier air medical flight service. Medically equipped, long-range, high altitude and high speed Learjets streak across the skies, transporting critical care patients to and from their much needed destinations both domestic and international. Teams of experts both on the air and in the ground facilitate Angel MedFlight medical flights and provide the highest levels of compassion and expertise.
