My Nonprofit Reviews

Review for Patient Airlift Services, Farmingdale, NY, USA
I was first introduced to PALS by my husband who's a private pilot. He joined the organization because of its stellar reputation and love for aviation. He flew a few missions as an assistant pilot and I attended one of the fundraising galas with him. That night while I listened to the heartfelt stories of the patients that had been helped by this organization, I knew that I wanted to become more involved. My background in marketing and event planning seemed like the perfect match and I wanted to lend my skills to their hard-working staff. I became an administrative volunteer at the PALS office over a year ago. I have seen first-hand all the time and effort that goes into coordinating the flights that help hundreds of patients get to their treatment facilities. The mission coordinators spend countless hours arranging transportation and the marketing team plans numerous events to help raise the funds needed to help those in need reach their critical care. I am truly amazed by the entire staff's dedication and the genuine love they feel towards the patients and their families. I must also applaud the many volunteer pilots that provide their planes and expertise to this worthwhile and important cause. I am grateful that PALS gave me the opportunity to witness all the good work they do throughout the year.
