Spartan Medical Supports Luke’s Wings and Wounded Warriors Throughout COVID-19 and Into 2021
Luke’s Wings is dedicated to reuniting wounded, ill, and injured active service members and veterans with their loved ones by providing complimentary airfare during recovery and rehabilitation.
WASHINGTON, D.C. (COMPANY HQ) (June 14, 2021) – Luke’s Wings is proud to announce Spartan Medical’s continued sponsorship of Luke’s Wings and the military community throughout COVID-19 and into 2021. In lieu of sponsoring Luke’s Wings 2020 Annual Heroes Gala, the funds from Spartan Medical’s sponsorship were directed toward supporting Luke’s Wings’ mission of providing complimentary airfare to wounded, ill and injured service members, veterans and their loved ones during recovery and rehabilitation. Luke’s Wings is honored that Spartan Medical has once again committed to being the 2021 Heroes Gala Challenge Coin Sponsor.
Given the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, Luke’s Wings made the difficult decision to cancel its annual Heroes Gala, set for April 18, 2020. The funds raised at the gala allow Luke’s Wings to remain a vital resource for emergency and long-term travel needs for beneficiaries and their families year-round. As a nonprofit organization, Luke’s Wings depends on the generous donations of others, such as Spartan Medical, to help support its mission. Luke’s Wings’ partnership with Spartan Medical continues to help fund these critical programs which were greatly affected by the pandemic. In 2020, Spartan Medical’s generous donation was able to fund an entire month of flights, helping transport service members to vital appointments and procedures.
With the world beginning to slowly open back up again safely, Luke’s Wings is excited to be hosting the 2021 Heroes Gala on Saturday, September 18, 2021! “We are grateful for the continued support from sponsors like Spartan Medical during this time, as they are one of the many reasons we can continue to support our service members and their families as flights are rapidly picking up again,” said Mary Scott, Luke’s Wings Chief of Staff.
Vince Proffitt, President of Spartan Medical, stated “Luke’s Wings is an incredible organization, laser focused on a mission that makes an incalculable difference to our Wounded Warriors and their families. They put the pieces together during a family’s toughest time to directly support our injured American Heroes…this is how healing happens…physically, emotionally, and surrounded by loved ones. We are here to support you Luke’s Wings, it’s part of our DNA and we are proud to be associated with you!”
