Northwest EMS was recently presented with a Commander’s Award from the Lancaster County US Marine Corps Reserve Toys For Tots® Coordinator, Gil Bixler. Bixler presented a certificate representing the award to Northwest EMS Community Outreach Manager, Lori Shenk, in appreciation for outstanding support of Toys For Tots® during 2022.
Following several months of collection efforts in 2022, Shenk coordinated the delivery of more than 60 over-flowing collection boxes of toys, and presented more than $1,400 in checks and cash to Lancaster County Toys For Tots®.
The Northwest EMS toy collection is organized by Shenk who coordinates with more than 25 “supporting partner” locations within the communities that Northwest EMS serves. To recognize the collaborative effort of the supporting partners, Bixler also provided a Commander’s Award certificate to Shenk to present to each of the Northwest EMS supporting partner locations.
