The Friends of Sierra Ambulance Memorial Wall is up to honor the nonprofit’s many Mountain Area donors.
The 10-foot by 20-foot wall, flanked by two 8-foot-tall carved bears, stands at the entrance to SAS’s parking lot at 40755 Winding Way in Oakhurst and features nearly 200 2-inch by 8-inch plaques.
There are three levels of contributions community members can make to have names placed on the wall – Gold for a $2,000 contribution, Silver for $500 and Bronze for $250.
Funds received will be used for additional training and needed equipment for members of the ambulance service.
The idea of the memorial wall was suggested to the board of directors by SAS Operations Manager Chris Ferbrache.
“This is a good idea for the people of this community to support their non-profit ambulance service while honoring a loved one that has passed on or a family member or couple who supports Sierra Ambulance Service,” said Ron Hewitson, SAS board member.
A major sponsor of the wall is the Picayune Rancheria of Chukchansi Indians who have provided the ambulance service with more than $1 million over the years for equipment improvement and expansion.
