Charlottesville, VA – March 28, 2014 – Officials at Charlottesville-Albemarle Rescue Squad (CARS) today announced a successful conclusion to this year’s Annual Fund Drive. The drive, which began last fall and extended into the first quarter of 2014, reached its goal of $300,000, thanks to the generosity of many area residents.
“CARS is doing everything possible to continue providing quality emergency services free of charge,” said Dayton Haugh, chief of CARS. “When so many people in our service areas step forward and contribute generously, it helps keep free service a reality.”
CARS serves primarily Charlottesville and the University of Virginia, as well as Albemarle County upon request.
“Each year, the challenges grow greater,” said Michael Berg, CARS president. ”But the fact that the people we serve step up consistently is a testament to the value placed by the public on CARS providing the highest quality primary rescue and emergency medical services.”
