“Mercy Ships hits a spot near and dear to the Air Techniques Corporation,” said Christoph Roeer, Chief Executive Officer of Air Techniques. ”Seeing the photos and videos of the procedures and care that Mercy Ships performs makes us proud to support this amazing charity.”
Air Techniques presented the donation to Mercy Ships representative, Ms. Jackie Abbott on Friday, May 12 at the Air Technique headquarters in Melville, NY. US Energy Recovery representative Mr. Bill Lee was also on site to present the donation of $5,173 to Mercy Ships.
