I've always taught my daughter from day one...you have to *give back*, pay it forward...I call timesRead More like this a labor of love. Makes your soul feel so good to be a small part of this. Good luck and God Bless ♥

Being one of God's children.. the bible as well as my church has taught me how to give...give ontoRead More other's and at the end God will reward you!!! It's better to give because you will get it back when you least expect it and it's a wonderful feeling!!

My family has been involved with the "squad" for over 50 years. Never once in all theRead More years did we wish that our family members had not responded to a call. Yest, it interrupted, dinner, sleep, family celebrations, Christmas and many other inconvenient times. But, knowing it might mean saving a life or bringing a life into the world, it was what had to be done. Not only can the squad use your donations, but perhaps you have an interest in helping your community. There is no greater way to serve your neighbors than volunteering. Perhaps you too, could be a member of the Freehold First Aid and Emergency Squad. I hope you and your family never need them, but if you do, they will be there for you! Thanks to all the volunteers over the years and those that serve today!

I am currently an active member and officer of this wonderful first aid squad. I watch my membersRead More day in and day out volunteer their nights, days, and holidays to serve our towns- leaving their lives and families to help serve our community and spending days on end during Hurricane Irene. They make me nothing but proud. There is nothing more rewarding than that feeling we get when we have made a difference in someone's life. We spend countless hours training to help serve our community. I am genuinely speechless that Mr. McGirr is answering in our time of need. He has given us hope that we can further continue to do the thing that we love. Now we are asking for your help. Please help us so that we can continue to help you!

Thank you to all the residents who have already donated to our annual fund drive. Soon those whoRead More have not yet had time to respond to our fund drive will receive a second chance. This appeal will be in the mail soon so here is your opportunity to send in your donation. You can now double your donation when you make the check out and simply note in the “memo line” of your check “Matching Fund”. Your donation will double thanks to the generosity of Freehold Township Committeeman Robert C. McGirr. Jim McAllister, President Freehold 1st Aid Squad

These kids have reached their goal of $2,000. Now the hardest part is working out the shipping. WeRead More are trying to reach out to DHL and similar services in hopes they will offer a considerable discount considering the circumstances.

We frequently hear about the Boy Scout Eagle awards but almost never hear of the young women whoRead More accomplish the Girl Scout Gold award. I am very impressed by their dedication to themselves, the Girl Scouting program and the community. The many years’ worth of effort, time, patience and learning has earned them the highest award in the Girl Scout program. The community should continue to watch these leaders, as each of these amazing women, move on to other organizations and make positive and progress changes for everyone.

Thanks so much to these young ladies for raising awareness about puppy mills! Most pet store puppiesRead More come from puppy mills. Help the ASPCA fight this horrible industry and sign our pledge – if a pet store sells puppies, don’t buy anything there! http://bit.ly/NoPetStorePuppiesPledge -Olivia, ASPCA Social Media Manager
