CLARK, NJ - The Clark Volunteer Emergency Squad (CVES) recently held its annual installation brunch to recognize its newly elected officers. Surplus food from the installation brunch was donated to the local Salvation Army shelter in Elizabeth, NJ.

The Salvation Army, a social and spiritual services organization, operates three emergency shelters in New Jersey (Elizabeth, Montclair and Perth Amboy), a soup kitchen and food pantry, as well as a number of thrift stores throughout the state. The organization serves adults in need and provides support services to facilitate independence and self-sufficiency.

The CVES is a volunteer organization that has served the Township of Clark since 1941. The squad’s mission is to provide immediate first aid and emergency response 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  The volunteer organization depends upon the generosity of Clark residents.  The organization is dedicated to serving the community and making a difference in the lives of those who need its services. Members of the squad continually train to offer a professional level emergency medical service to the residents of Clark and surrounding areas.
