On behalf of Armstrong Ambulance Service, we wanted to extend a sincere thank you to our employees and community members who so generously donated winter clothing items and supported our third annual Winter Warmth Drive. Thanks to everyone’s giving spirit and combined efforts we were able to donate over 900 winter clothing items to Bay Cove Human Services and give the gift of comfort and warmth in the New Year. This year’s donations includes 224 pairs of socks, 134 coats, 52 sweaters, 84 pairs of pants, 90 sweatshirts, 47 shirts, 5 vests, 75 hats, 7 headbands, 52 scarves, 78 pairs of gloves, 12 pairs of shoes, 10 pairs of boots, 16 undergarments and 6 blankets.
A remarkable cause such as this called for a grand delivery! On Wednesday, January 2nd Armstrong organized a special ambulance transport and delivery to Bay Cove Human Services with all the donations collected over the past month. Bay Cove was so appreciative of all the donations and is looking forward to our continued partnership in the years to come.
We also extend a big thank you to Ed Kelly and Nina Feinberg for all their coordination and help in making this great cause possible again this year.
