The Cape Cod Foundation Announces Lower Cape Ambulance Association Fund
The Cape Cod Foundation has announced the creation of the Lower Cape Ambulance Association (LCAA) Fund dedicated to the education and training of first responders. The LCAA Fund has been selected as the recipient of a Hero Fund America challenge grant, establishing a permanent affiliation with the Hero Fund America Local Hero Fund.
Hero Fund America was founded after the Boston Marathon Bombings and is grounded in service to emergency workers. The organization acts as a facilitator whose work includes collaboration with community partners.
“LCAA has been dedicated to serving our neighbors on the Lower Cape for close to 80 years. The creation of the Fund at The Cape Cod Foundation, as well as the challenge grant from Hero Fund America, will enable us to reinvest in the first responders who make our service possible,” said Steve Roderick, Treasurer of the Lower Cape Ambulance Association.
“We are so pleased to be partnering with the Lower Cape Ambulance Association and Hero Fund America to support this resource for local first responders, “ stated Kristin O’Malley, Executive Director of The Cape Cod Foundation. “LCAA has played a significant role on the Lower Cape for many years, and we are honored that they have established this fund with us to support their sustainability and growth.”
Lower Cape Ambulance Association will host its fourth annual golf tournament on Sunday, September 27th at 11AM at Highland Links Golf Course in Truro in conjunction with the celebration of National First Responder’s Day. Funds raised from the tournament will benefit the new LCAA Fund’s education and training of first responders, in addition to equipment replacement and free care for those in need.
Lower Cape Ambulance Association was created in 1937 with the sole purpose of transporting patients to Cape Cod Hospital from the Lower Cape. Currently the Association transports 1000 patients each year to the hospital in addition to responding to hundreds of local area rescue calls, blood pressure checks and other EMS needs.
