Frontenac Paramedic Services suport Toy Drive 2005
Frontenac Paramedic Services continued their support to the CHUM FM’s Annual Toy Drive again this year. “We had so much fun last year with the Toy Drive and wanted to participate and support our communities again this year” states Susan Brown, Frontenac Paramedic Services Manger of Quality Assurance. “What better way to give back to our community than to help give a child a Christmas”.
The Paramedic Service was overwhelmingly supported by the residents of the County of Frontenac and the City of Kingston and we couldn’t have done it without all this support. “It was a great opportunity to meet and talk with the people of our communities, in a non-emergent atmosphere, and to be able educate them with regards to the service we provide” says Paul Charbonneau, Director of Emergency Services for the County of Frontenac.
Again this year $2000 cash was received and over 1000 toys were collected, which completely filled two ambulances stuffed to the roof.
These toys are distributed bythe Salvation Army to children that are in need during Christmas. The area they cover for children from this Toy Drive are: Ompah, Sharbot Lake, Parham, Kingston, Odessa, Amherstview, Sydenham, and Glenburnie.
