Tony Castiglie, Vice President and Treasurer
What is there to write about? Our lives, our society and Houston Ground Angels have all been severely impacted by the Coronavirus with the 24-hour news coverage, statistics and a weary citizenship everywhere. It will be nice when normalcy returns, if it ever returns. Perhaps we will return to a new normal.

Charles Whitworth has now completed over
. Charles joined us in November 2007 and has been rocking along ever since.
Along with the rest of the program, the use of Uber has dropped significantly. It is difficult to draw any conclusions about these stats because everything is in turmoil. We will see what happens in the future.

Houston Ground Angels,
Thank you Dick Stabell for the rides, kindness and support! We will continue to donate to your mission thanks to volunteers like you!

Through the efforts of Director Derek King, working with a volunteer group from Insperity, we are making some major progress in getting the Mission Management System under control. The addition of Derek to the board has been a big plus. It has been a long and tedious process, but Derek has to be commended for his persistence and dedication. Like all businesses, Insperity has been hit hard. Although they are still with us, we have been put on the back burner. Eventually, we will get there.
March brought us two new volunteers. Sandy Tomme resides in the Energy Corridor and Garth Whittington resides in Montrose. Thank you for joining and we hope you enjoy being part of our organization.
The year 2020, which started out so promising, is now in a state of flux. Thus far, I am not aware of any of our volunteers or family members who have contracted Coronavirus. My nephew, a Captain in the New Orleans Fire Department, has. After a few days of not feeling very well, he has fully recovered and did not transmit the virus to either his wife or his daughter. Perhaps that is a good sign.
If our history has shown us anything, Americans will come back. Wishing everyone good health and prosperity. Peace and love to all.
