The KVAC is pleased to announce they recently received a generous $15,000 donation from the Material Sand and Gravel Corp. located in the Hamlet of Gravesville. The funds will be applied toward the cost of a second ambulance acquired last year.  Jude Clemente, Material Sand and Gravel President, stated “as part of the heavy construction industry and with many employees from the area we recognize the importance of having locally available emergency services. We are very pleased to support the KVAC in providing those services.”

The KVAC would also like to thank Stewart’s Shops, the Community Foundation of Herkimer and Oneida Counties, the Weakley Foundation, Perfex Corp. and the Estate of Graham Prindle as well as those individuals making donations this past year. These funds have been instrumental in the acquisition of new life saving medical equipment and training aids. The Herkimer County Legislature also provided American Rescue Plan Act grant funding that contributed to facility regulatory compliance improvements and the purchase of new cardiac care equipment.
