Media Advisory/Photo Opportunity Family to Donate Stuffed Animals to GCEMS - 2 Year Old receives Stuffed Animal during ambulance transport Inspires Parents to Collect Toys for Future Patients

WHAT:

A family whose 2 year old son required transport by Gloucester County Emergency Medical Services (GCEMS) has been gathering new stuffed animals to donate to GCEMS so they can be on the vehicles to give to future frightened patients.

During the little boy's trip, the EMT gave him a stuffed animal to comfort him, which prompted his mother and a few of her friends to gather new stuffed animals to give children who would have to be transported in an ambulance.

The donation of the 40 stuffed animals will take place at Cole Dopke's home, so he can meet the EMT's under more pleasant circumstances.
