Project Linus

Armstrong Ambulance is proud to announce our partnership with Project Linus.

After reading an article in 1995 about a young girl who depended on her “blankie” to tolerate her chemo treatments, Karen Loucks founded Project Linus. The mission of Project Linus is to “provide love, a sense of security, warmth, and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly created by volunteer “blanketeers””. Since the 1995 inception, over six million handmade blankets have been donated to children all over the world.

This extraordinary mission has made such an impact on lives and continues to expand into communities in all 50 states. Armstrong is proud to have partnered with Project Linus and District Attorney Marian Ryan’s office in an effort to provide a special blanket to any child affected by a crisis in Middlesex County.

In this partnership, Armstrong will not only be a drop off location for any handmade blankets in the area but will also work with the Project Linus/Middlesex DA team to best identify and distribute these special security blankets to children in need.

All homemade blankets can be dropped off at Armstrong’s
Arlington Headquarters located at 87 Mystic Street.

Special Delivery

Haynes Baby Shower 012 (1024x922)

On Friday, April 21st, we had the honor of hosting a reunion for SheNequa, Laurie, and Shane Haynes.

Two Months ago, Nick Henderson and Kyle Vieira responded to a 911 call for a woman in labor. Once Nick and Kyle arrived on scene, things moved very quickly so the crew assisted SheNequa with the birth of baby Shane. By their talent and grace under pressure, you would never know that this was both Nick and Kyle’s first delivery! Mom and baby arrived at Armstrong today healthy, happy and excited to reunite with the crew that helped bring Shane into the world. SheNequa and Armstrong exchanged gifts, (one being an “Armstrong Ambulance Special Delivery” onesie), and recounted the very memorable events from the morning of her delivery.
