Rural/Metro and St. Camillus Health and Rehabilitation Center's Red Hat Society have teamed up to collect and distribute hats, gloves and mittens to Central New Yorkers in need this winter. At 2:30 p.m. Dec. 29 at St. Camillus's Chapel Gardens, the Red Hat Society gave all of the clothing collected over the past few weeks to Rural/Metro. Over the next few months, Rural/Metro's Paramedics and EMT's will distribute the hats and gloves to people in the area who need the clothing to stay warm during Central New York's harsh winter weather.
St. Camillus Health and Rehabilitation Center is a not-for-profit healthcare facility located on Syracuse's west side. It was founded in 1969. Rural/Metro has been an integral part of the region's healthcare delivery system since 1953, and is the only accredited ambulance service in Central New York.
