Eastchester Volunteer Ambulance Corps Get New Ambulance Courtesy of The Community Fund PDF Print Email


By Amy Korb, Executive Director, The Community Fund

Sep. 9, 2020: On August 17, 2020, the Eastchester Volunteer Ambulance Corps took receipt of a new ambulance for their fleet. The state of the art vehicle is crucial to the organization's success and the impact it makes on the whole community.

Each year, The Community Fund sets aside $50,000 to assist EVAC, which receives modest aid from the Town of Eastchester but relies heavily upon private donations. Every three years, the Fund gives EVAC a check for a new ambulance, which runs about $150,000. The Fund has partnered with EVAC for the past 20 years to ensure that Bronxville, Eastchester, and Tuckahoe have the most up to date vehicles.

Maxwell K Goldberg, Deputy Chief & Public Information Officer and EMT-B, is thrilled with the new purchase. "Eastchester Volunteer Ambulance Corps would like to extend our sincerest thank you to The Community Fund for making the purchase of 57-B4 possible," he said. "This 2020 Chevrolet G3500 Chassis with a Braun Express Type III Ambulance configuration is the perfect addition to our fleet. As new residents enter the community, our call volume continues to grow, and the addition of a fourth ambulance allows Eastchester Volunteer Ambulance Corps to meet the demands of the community with top-notch medical care. Thanks to the generosity of The Community Fund, 57-B4 is loaded with state of the art cardiac equipment, enhanced safety features, and a sleek design. Combine these features with the great reputation of Braun Custom Ambulances and we are confident you will see this particular unit on the road for a decade or longer."

EVAC strives to keep three ambulances in service at all times. The addition of the new ambulance gives them extra flexibility to handle the maximum amount of calls.

Jonalie Korengold, President of The Community Fund, understands the importance of this specific grant. "Now more than ever, our community needs the most up to date medical resources. With donations from our friends and neighbors, we are happy to purchase for the Eastchester Volunteer Ambulance Corps a new ambulance to be used in our area."

The Eastchester Volunteer Ambulance Corps, Inc. (EVAC), which started in 1952, is the sole emergency ambulance provider for the town of Eastchester and the villages of Tuckahoe and Bronxville. The mission of EVAC is to provide quality, compassionate, cost effective, and expeditious pre-hospital emergency medical care to our community. As an advanced life support service with paramedics on duty 24 hours a day, EVAC provides care that meets national standards for pre-hospital emergency medical services delivery.

For 100 years, The Community Fund has been supporting agencies and community programs which provide services to residents of the Bronxville 10708, Eastchester and Tuckahoe (BET) area, including: 

-Family initiatives, including cancer support groups, bereavement counseling, and drug and alcohol and counseling services. 

-Senior living assistance, including escorts for transportation, housecleaning services, shopping assistance, and recreational programs. 

-Youth support, including after school programs, teen scene activities, summer enrichment programs, and drug and substance abuse education in BET schools.

Bronxville Public Library

The Bronxville Public Library traces its origins back to 1875, when it was a small lending library housed in a room attached to the “Bronxville Model School.” The Library was officially chartered in 1906 and moved into the Village Hall Building. The needs of the library grew with the town and, in 1942, a new standalone building was erected, which is where the Library is today. Over the years, the Library was renovated and expanded to meet the needs of the community.

The Library has wonderful resources for adults and children and offers a comfortable and relaxing environment. The Library also houses a fine art collection, consisting principally of Bronxville painters and sculptors.

The Library offers special events, art exhibitions, and programs for adults, young adults and children.  All events are open to the public, unless otherwise indicated.
