Little Angels Spread Angel Flight Joy

Christmas Caroling-6-2Emily wagner christmas caroling

The weather outside was, well, warm, and hardly frightful on December 23 as Emily Wagner led her friends around the neighborhood to sing carols and share the Angel Flight story. It was the third such Christmas caroling event she organized to raise awareness and money for Angel Flight. Emily is a fourth grade student (she’s the girl directly in front of the door) at Old Donation Center in Virginia Beach. She heard about our charity three years ago at a community fair at her school and became passionate about the essential service we perform to ensure patient access to medical care. These incredible little angels raised $210–and they’re planning to do it again next year! (Photos courtesy of Wayne Rhodes)
