Phillips 66 Aviation, a refiner and supplier of jet fuels and avgas to private, commercial and military aviation, awarded $23,460 to longtime partner Corporate Angel Network (CAN) — a non-profit organization that helps cancer patients access the best treatment by arranging free travel on corporate aircraft.
“Phillips 66 Aviation is honored to support this prestigious organization and augment CAN’s mission to provide life-saving treatment to cancer patients in a timely, affordable manner,” said Meghan du Plessis, Brand Director, Phillips 66 Aviation. “We look forward to growing our relationship with CAN and are humbled to see our efforts help those in need.”
The donation was presented at the 2022 NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE), and is a part of Phillips 66 Aviation’s ongoing sponsorship of the Corporate Angel Award, a program that recognizes corporations and flight departments that have demonstrated outstanding dedication as participants of CAN. With over 500 participating major corporations, the award recognizes four corporate flight departments each year. This year’s recipients include LimoLink, McKesson, Medtronic, and FlightSafety International.
“CAN’s service to our patients and their families would not be possible without the generosity of corporations like Phillips 66 Aviation,” said Gina A. Russo, executive director of CAN. “The support we receive from our partners directly impacts hundreds of lives each year, and brings patients hope by reducing their physical, emotional and financial stress.”
Phillips 66 has sponsored the Corporate Angel Award since 2010, donating more than $240,000. Corporate Angel Network arranges approximately 125 patient flights each month and has completed 66,000 cancer patient flights since its inception in 1981.
