Woodstown American Legion Ambulance Association Receives Donated VehiclesLast Edited:
Four months ago the Woodstown American Legion Ambulance Association lost everything, from their life-saving equipment to their ambulances, after a devastating fire ripped through their station.
But on the afternoon of Friday, June 15th, they moved one step closer to getting things back to normal.
Christiana Care Health Systems donated two ambulances to the Woodstown Ambulance Company to help continue their services in the community.
Officials say this latest donation has helped the company get back to operating with the same amount of ambulances they had before the fire.
They added that without the outpouring of support from the community, rebuilding would not have been possible.
"It's overwhelming, just with the continued support since the fire," said Joe Valentine, president of the American Legion Ambulance Association of Woodstown. "We're thankful, we could not do this without the support of our partners from the hospitals that serve our area. It's just an overwhelming feeling that we can't say enough how thankful we are."
Officials with the Woodstown Ambulance Company says their next step is to tear down the old fire-damaged building and begin rebuilding a new one its place.
