Bill Gift

Angel Flight East remembers dedicated volunteer Bill Gift.

The Angel Flight East community mourns the passing of volunteer Bill Gift on September 7, 2018.  Bill was a dedicated AFE volunteer for many years, sharing his enthusiasm and dedication to helping others.  His volunteer work included mission coordination, special event, and office support, and anything else that came his way.  Adam Zucker, former President of Angel Flight East, said that Bill’s genuine kindness and good nature was a source of comfort and friendship to AFE patients.  In addition to volunteering at AFE, he also worked with Patient Airlift Services

We thank Bill for his selfless volunteerism and friendship to AFE and its patients over the years.
