(December 23, 2021 – WASHINGTON, D.C.) Luke’s Wings is proud to announce it will reach its goal of providing 500 flights to reunite service members and veterans with their loved ones thanks to the help of DARCARS Automotive Group. Luke’s Wings, who had already ensured 295 heroes would not have to spend Christmas alone, will be able to meet its 500-flight goal due to the generosity of DARCARS 205 flight donation.

“Throughout the years, we have seen that there is no greater need for visits with family than during the holidays,” said Fletcher Gill, Luke’s Wings Co-Founder and CEO. “DARCARS contribution makes an immeasurable impact in the lives of hundreds of service members and veterans allowing them to have their loved ones by their sides. Luke’s Wings is excited to have DARCARS support in helping make this year’s campaign a success.”

DARCARS is proud to be able to support Luke’s Wings to ensure that injured service members and veterans will have family members by their side during their recovery and rehabilitation,” said DARCARS COO and Vice-President Jamie Darvish. “It is so crucial that Americans never forget the sacrifices that our military members and their families must make to keep us safe, and we hope that this effort conveys the appreciation for everything they do for all Americans.”

Luke’s Wings was founded in 2008 after learning that the government does not always provide flights for family or loved ones to be bedside after a service member is injured. This is where Luke’s Wings steps in to fill the gap for the months and years ahead. Over the past 13 years, the organization has provided more than 13,000 flights reuniting wounded, ill and injured service members, veterans and their loved ones during recovery and rehabilitation. The campaign runs from Veterans Day, November 11th through January 10th, and donations can be made at give.lukeswings.org. For a $50 donation, the donor will receive an exclusive Luke’s Wings 2021 Christmas ornament, for a donation of $350, the ornament will be accompanied with a card that indicates the ornament sent a soldier home for the holidays.
