STUFF AN AMBULANCE!
As everyone is aware, Vegreville Emergency Medical Services (VEMS) holds a semi-annual food drive in support of the Vegreville Food Bank. This re-occurring event is always a huge success with the support of local businesses and the citizens of Vegreville and surrounding area.
Through October 5-7, 2017, that amazing support continued as VEMS canvassed patrons of the local grocery stores, Wal-Mart, Coop and No Frills, to donate non-perishable food items.
At the end of collection period, VEMS determined that 1,120 kilograms of food as well as $1456.95 was donated from the generous citizens and businesses of Vegreville. For this continued support, we thank you. These donations were delivered to the Food Bank on October 13, 2017.
In 2017, VEMS raised $2,596.95 in cash donations and collected 1,392 kilograms for the Vegreville Food Bank. This year, we literally “Stuffed an Ambulance”.
Once again, Vegreville Emergency Services would like to thank all of those who donated in 2017 and we look forward to seeing you all again during the Easter Season where we kick off the 2018 “Stuff an Ambulance” Food Drive campaign.
