American Medical Response (AMR) Is Responding in Action to Assist The Time for Change Foundation. An AMR Ambulance came rolling into the Time for Change parking lot on Wednesday in order to respond to the overwhelming need for women’s clothing. AMR drivers and manager staff spent weeks collecting lightly used quality clothing to ensure that the clients at Time for Change have the required daily clothing needed and also professional clothing that will enable them to put their best foot forward when on a job interview.

Diana McCafferty, Manager of AMR Administration San Bernardino County came to Time for Change and asked, “How can we help Time for Change as a support partner?” Time for Change is grateful any time a company or individual asks the question, “How can we help your mission.” We thank the entire team that AMR brought to engage in the delivery of the gifted clothing and hygiene items. AMR is looking forward to expanding the engagement opportunities with Time for Change throughout the year. Diane McCafferty said, “AMR is honored to assist the residents of San Bernardino. Time for Change is making a direct impact in assisting those in need.”
