Narberth Ambulance Holds 3rd Annual Turkey Dinner Drive
NARBERTH AMBULANCE HOLDS 3RD ANNUAL TURKEY DINNER DRIVE
On Wednesday evening 20 members of Volunteer Medical Service Corps of Lower Merion, Narberth, Conshohocken and West Conshohocken (Narberth Ambulance) and their families gathered to kick off their 3rd Annual Turkey Dinner Drive. Most Wednesday nights there are 2 crews in service but on this Thanksgiving eve there were 6 crews plus additional support units to serve the community in an entirely different way. For the third straight year members of VMSC gathered at their station on Sibley Ave in Ardmore and loaded over 50 turkey dinners onto ambulances for delivery to families that are less fortunate this holiday season. One of the core values of VMSC is to give back to the communities that they serve during the holiday season.
“Every year I go out and purchase all the food and the members of the squad help me to assemble the boxes that we deliver in our board room.,” said Marie Eckman, who spearheads the event every year for the ambulance squad. “It’s another great way for us to give back.” said Eckman.
VMSC is a non-profit ambulance squad that covers 29 square miles in Lower Merion, Narberth, Conshohocken and West Conshohocken. The charitable mission of VMSC is to provide the highest quality emergency pre-hospital care and medial transportation for the communities we serve.
Chris Flanagan, Chief of Operations is accustomed to the enormous commitment of both his career and volunteer staff on a daily basis. “It is really great to see the members of the squad serving our communities in so many different ways, but tonight it is an honor to help make a difference in a completely different and truly worthwhile manner this holiday.” said Flanagan.
