Slightly more women (51%) received care than men (49%). More than 56% of people we helped were age 65-plus. The 35-64 age group was next at nearly 25 percent.

The volunteers of the East Bloomfield division of CES provide 24/7 ambulance coverage for the East Bloomfield district. We're so proud of the work they put into it at our monthly training sessions, and we're glad they're part of our team!

George W. McCullough, a Canandaigua native, began volunteering with CES in 2013 after he spent more than four decades in health care. The 64-year-old husband, father of six and grandfather of 11 grandkids does lawn and grounds work for CES, helping in any way he can—and his generosity doesn’t end there. When not at the station, George is a watchman at a local K-8 school, and he also knits hats (like the adorable purple one in his hand!) for babies at the CareNet Pregnancy Center of Canandaigua. He credits the care he and his family received from CES when his mother-in-law passed away as a main reason he continues to volunteer.

Crutches, walkers and wheelchairs are often temporary needs. If you have any of these from a prior injury, consider donating it to our loan closet and help someone in the community in their time of need.
