Volunteers are the lifeblood of Eagles Wings.
Each year the wonderful people of Beaufort County contribute between 15,000 and 16,000 hours, volunteering at Eagles Wings.
Even with the crazy year 2020 was, over 11,500 hours were worked!
Each month we will shine a spotlight on one these valuable Eagles Wings volunteers.
Ed Ambrose came to Eagles Wings as a volunteer in late 2013, retiring after 30 years working PCS Phosphate in Aurora. (It was Texas Gulf when Ed started) He is a Vietnam veteran, serving 4 years in the U.S. Navy getting the opportunity to travel all across the South East Pacific, including Australia and the Philippines. Ed has 2 boys, aged 53 and 56. In addition to working with Eagles Wings, Ed is active with his church, First Baptist in Chocowinity.
Ed has volunteered at least 1000 hours a year, every year since 2015. Last year, he contributed over 1600 hours to Eagles Wings, averaging out to an incredible 30 hours a week!! Ed is a forklift operator, van driver, homebound delivery person, and anything else he might be asked to do. He is always available to EW on a moments notice. We are incredibly blessed to have him as part of our organization.
