MedStar and Pembroke Drive/Berkeley Court Residents to Host 2 Wonderful Families for Annual Trick or Treat Event

 

October 30, 2018 (Fort Worth, Texas) Two amazing kids and their families have been selected for MedStar’s annual Trick or Treat event in partnership with the Berkeley and Pembroke neighborhoods in Fort Worth. These special children will be brought by a MedStar crew in an ambulance and escorted door-to-door with their families by medical personnel from MedStar.


These children would not otherwise be able to experience a true Halloween event with their families if it were not for the continual presence of the EMTs and Paramedics with MedStar, nor the hospitality of the Pembroke Drive/Berkeley Court residents.


The residents of the Berkeley and Pembroke neighborhoods do an amazing job with these special needs children and their families! We are grateful for their willingness to host these children and welcome them with such open arms.


This is the 6th year for MedStar’s Trick or Treat Event.
