Atlanta-based Storage Post, a self-storage operator with locations on the East and Gulf Coasts, recently donated $500 to Angel Flight, a non-profit organization that provides free transportation for medical and humanitarian purposes. Storage Post's Doraville, Ga., facility is located near Angel Flight's headquarters and the Dekalb-Peachtree Airport, where Angel Flight coordinates charitable missions using private airplanes.
Angel Flight assists hundreds of families each year and is entirely funded by corporate and private donations. The organization's mission is to ensure no one is denied potentially life-saving care because of travel costs. In addition, Angel Flight actively responds to compelling non-medical-related transportation needs and helps reunite families separated by disaster.
"Angel Flight is a compassionate organization with an important goal to help families during difficult times," said Storage Post Chief Operations Officer Jack Chaney. "Many Storage Post employees and members of the management team were affected by Hurricane Katrina. Angel Flight's assistance delivering supplies and medical equipment to New Orleans saved lives. We want to give back to Angel Flight so they can continue to assist those in need in Atlanta and beyond."
Angel Flight provides health-care access by arranging free transportation and offers disaster relief through the delivery of supplies and personnel to areas in need. The organization was founded in 1983 by Jim Shafer, a medical professional and pilot.
Storage Post has locations in Georgia, Louisiana, New Jersey and New York. The company is actively pursuing acquisitions.
