North Texas Giving Day was a great success. Thanks so much to those of you who participated by donating, telling friends, and volunteering at events. This year, AFSC raised $37,000 through individual donations, a foundation gift, and matching funds from Lone Star Communications.
Thanks to those of you sending in photos when you file your mission reports.
We understand that not every mission is a good photo opportunity. But when they are, these images become a critical part of our efforts to get the word out to new passengers, pilots, and donors. Keep 'em coming!

If you're near Albuquerque, attend the event at Bosque Brewing on Oct. 13, 1–4pm. But you can also bid online from anywhere! All proceeds benefit Angel Flight South Central.
Learn more from the event link above or by watching this KQRE-TV interview with organizer Patti Farley and New Mexico Wing Leader Steve Rhenberg. VIEW THE AUCTION
