Children Thrilled by Toys from EMTs & Santa

YMCA-8468

Instead of in his customary sleigh, Santa arrived this week at the YMCA Downtown Early Childhood Education Center in a special ambulance 

HEMSI employees donated the toys at their Christmas party in early December to continue the yearly tradition of this community service project. United Way provided support by wrapping and tagging the gifts for the local children.complete with flashing lights and crew. As part of the HEMSI Cares program, Santa helped the EMTs deliver a personalized gift to every single child.

Generosity is deep-rooted within the HEMSI culture and this annual project is a favorite among employees.  As it does every year, this week’s special delivery met with squeals of excitement and smiling faces.
