Scottsdale, AZ – December 29, 2014

Employees of Angel MedFlight Worldwide Air Ambulance donated backpacks filled with toys, clothing, food and more to Mrs. Butler’s first grade class at Westwood Primary School in Phoenix. The class is comprised of 29 students representing six different countries; all students are in the ESL (English as a second language) program.

Each child wrote a letter to Santa with a wish for something they ‘needed’ and something they ‘wanted.’  Many children asked for basic necessities that many of us take for granted such as food, shoes, coats and beds. Angel MedFlight employees came together and fulfilled every need and want for each student. All presents were hand wrapped and personally delivered to the students by Angel MedFlight employees.

“This is my favorite part of the holidays, sharing the true spirit of Christmas, marketing manager Rebekah Kanigan said, “Seeing all my colleagues come together and make a direct impact on these kids is what it’s all about.”

Employees delivered backpacks, hand wrapped gifts, stockings, food items and personal letters from Santa.  The children were in awe when they walked into their classroom filled with gifts; their reactions were priceless. Many of the children were excited to have food to take home to their families.

“I didn’t believe Santa was real. Now, I believe!” said one little girl as she opened her gifts.

Angel MedFlight is proud to continue its culture of giving and impacting the community.
