On behalf of Armstrong, we extend a sincere thank you to our amazing employees and community members who generously donated winter clothing items and non-perishable food items during our fourth annual winter drive. Thanks to everyone’s giving spirit and combined efforts we were able to donate an abundance of coats, sweaters, pants, hats, socks, gloves and boots to Bay Cove Human Services. We also donated numerous boxes of healthy food to The Greater Boston Food Bank which will be distributed to families in need across Eastern Massachusetts.
After collecting items for over a month, Armstrong organized a special transport and delivery to Bay Cove Human Services and The Greater Boston Food Bank to drop off all the donations. Both organizations were so appreciative of this years turnout and are looking forward to our continued partnership in the years to come.
Thank you to all who helped make the drive so successful!
Armstrong Ambulance is pleased to announce that it will host its annual blood drive next month. On Thursday, Feb. 13, Armstrong will partner with the American Red Cross to host a blood drive at its Arlington headquarters. The blood drive is open to members of the community and fellow first responders alike, and serves as an opportunity for all to make a lifesaving blood donation.
The drive will last from 2-7 p.m., and donors must sign up in advance in order to participate.

“We look forward to hosting our blood drive every year as a way to provide our team members and members of the communities we serve with an opportunity to give back,” Armstrong CEO Rich Raymond said. “Each year, people come out to strongly support this initiative, and I have no doubt they will again in 2020.”
