MIDDLEPORT — While it may not be the way emergency medical personnel typically serve those in need, on Friday they helped to serve the county’s youth in need of Christmas joy.


An employee lead program raised funds to purchase gifts of toys, coats, hats, gloves, and many other items for children in Meigs County who otherwise may not have received such gifts.


On Friday, EMS employees met with employees from Meigs County Children Services to deliver the gifts to the agency for distribution to area children.


Four squads brought bags and stretchers full of wrapped gifts for distribution to area youth. Each gift was labeled as being for a boy or a girl and what age the gift was appropriate for.


Lori Reynolds of Meigs EMS said this is the first time the agency had taken on such a program. She added that they hope for it to grow each year.


Terri Ingels of Meigs County Children Services said the agency provides gifts to approximately 350 children each Christmas. This includes the 22 children currently in foster care.
