In early March, a Facebook post requesting help for a local five-year-old boy needing medical transportation caught the eye of our own Jennifer Sullivan. She talked with her husband whose friend, Tom, is a volunteer pilot for “Angel Flights,” a non-profit organization offering free charitable assistance for people with medical (legitimate) needs. Tom soon began communicating with the boy’s parents, and the rest is history. A caring pilot from CT and a family in need from Maine — complete strangers — started a relationship.
On Friday, March 12th, Tom took a day off from work and flew the boy and his parents on the return flight home to Portland, Maine, a day earlier than originally scheduled due to the forecasted heavy rains for Saturday. This very generous act reminds us that there are so many people in the world who will donate time and money to help a stranger.
