NBC News Milwaukee Features Plane Donation

Did you know that Wings of Hope receives about 20 donated planes a year? NBC TV station TMJ-4 covered a recent donation from Alan Kuro, a donor in the Milwaukee area. Alan earned his pilot’s license in the 1970s, but had to give up flying due to medical reasons. When he got a flyer in the mail about the Wings of Hope plane donation program, he thought donating his Piper 180 would be a great way to support a good cause. In an interview with TMJ-4 reporter, TaTiana Cash, Alan said, “I enjoyed this. This was inspiring for me to do this.” Alan also talked about how his donated plane will be used to support our mission versus its former life as a private plane. “What they do with it (the plane) is a lot more than what I did,” Alan said. “I just did it for fun.” We are so grateful to Alan, and all of our aircraft donors. If you have a plane looking for a second life, give us a call at 636-537-1302 or email laura.helling@wingsofhope.ngo. Learn more at www.wingsofhope.ngo/get-involved/airplane-donation.
