Ambulance district prepares for "Home for the Holidays" service

STODDARD COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

The Stoddard County Ambulance district will conduct its 30th annual “Home for the Holidays” project this year.

Members of the district take patients who are only able to travel by ambulance from nursing homes in Stoddard County to homes within the county.

It’s a free service provided on Thanksgiving Day.

After the visit, members of the district will pick the patient back up and take them back to the nursing home. The visit can be for as long as they want, even over night.

If you or someone you know are interested in taking part in the free service, you should contact the activity director at the nursing home where you or a loved one live. You are asked not to contact the ambulance office directly.
