EMT Franchise Participates In MDA Telethon In St. Louis

Non-emergency medical transportation company donates more than $35,000

September 20, 2010 // Franchising.com // (St. Louis, MO) – Express Medical Transporters (EMT) sent 12 volunteers to help answer phones at the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) telethon in St. Louis Monday, Sept. 6. In addition to volunteering their time, EMT matched donations for 15 minutes during the show, donating more than $30,000. They also gave the MDA a check for $5,000.

"We transport these people on a daily basis so we see the stories," said Bernie Squitieri, founder and president of EMT. "We wanted to be able to give back and help outside of what we do on a regular basis. We hope to participate in the telethon every year."

Money raised during the telethon helps children suffering from muscular dystrophy in many ways. For example, the money buys flu shots, research, support group sessions, physical, occupational or respiratory therapy consultations and sends children to MDA summer camp. The Labor Day telethon raised more than $1.5 million in St. Louis alone. Overall, $58,919,838 was donated to the MDA through the telethon.

EMT provides professional, non-emergency transportation services for a wide variety of clients including passengers in wheelchairs, seniors and the disabled, special-needs children and many others. Agencies, institutions, adult day care, rehab centers, mental health facilities, medical offices, dialysis centers, state Medicaid, hospitals, schools and more all utilize EMT's services.
