Officials with the Charlottesville-Albemarle Rescue Squad (CARS) announce they have reached their goal for their annual fund drive.
CARS is thanking residents for helping them reach their goal of raising $300,000.
“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.”
CARS volunteers are residents of Charlottesville, Albemarle Co. and UVa. students who donate their time and skills to help their community.
