Ambulance, Not Sleigh, Delivers Toys To Huntsville Kids

Huntsville Emergency Medical Services, Inc. (HEMSI) employees collected toys at their annual Christmas party to donate to the YMCA Downtown Early Childhood Education Center as part of their HEMSI Cares program.

Each year, the staff shows up to the YMCA with an ambulance full of toys.

“Every year, it is a joy to interact with the children as they receive a personalized, wrapped toy chosen just for them,” said Barbara Nash, who does communications for the company.
