For their efforts supporting our troops in Iraq, the members of Atmore Ambulance Service were provided with a special recognition last week.
Ed Wilson, awards chairman for the Employer Services for the Guard and Reserve for Alabama presented the members of Atmore Ambulance Service with a plaque recognizing their recent efforts to send care packages to the troops in Iraq.
More than 100 one-gallon zip closure plastic bags filled with goodies from candy to seasonings, lip balm and moisturizer were gathered from local businesses and individuals.
Patricia Still, owner of the ambulance service, said the help of local businesses really came through. "With this…not one single business turned us down. Everyone we've contacted has been able to donate something to put in the packages, or they've donated money to help buy things or to pay for the shipping," Still said.
Still also takes night calls for the families of soldiers serving in Iraq to bring them news if needed.
Charlotte Boyle, Atmore Red Cross representative helped Wilson present the plaque at the Atmore Advance building.
