Huntington Community First Aids Squad Responds to Local Family in More Ways Than One
Huntington Community First Aid Squad (HCFAS) participated in the 6th annual Friends of Huntington Station Latin Quarter’s (HSLQ) Toy Drive on Saturday December 19th, 2015 at 1399 New York Avenue in Huntington Station. HCFAS had agreed to “adopt” a family they had responded to on a previous call. On Friday, November 13th, 2015 there was a fire in the Whitman Village complex located on Lowndes Avenue in Huntington Station. Multiple homes had fire damage including that of James and Angie Taylor, and their three children. HCFAS volunteers took on a collection and at the HSLQ toy drive, HCFAS paramedic Richard Rudolph presented the James’ family with over $800 in various items that included toys, gift cards, toiletries, and clothing.
