CARS asks for help in reaching fundraising goal

The Charlottesville-Albemarle Rescue Squad (CARS) is seeking the public’s help to meet its $400,000 fundraising goal for the 2011-2012 year. The volunteer organization’s current total is only about half of the expected goal.

According to a news release, in the past, CARS was able to reach its Annual Fund campaign by the end of December, but more recently, the organization had to push the deadline to the new year.

“Monetary donations to CARS are tax deductibles but, in order to be deductible during this tax year, CARS must receive the donation by the end of this week,” CARS President Larry Claytor said in the release.

CARS offers services, free of charge, to the City of Charlottesville, UVA and part of Albemarle County.
