HELMETTA, NJ - JC and Mallorie Murawski are both volunteers with the Jamesburg First Aid Squad. The sisters were nominated to be Thursday's Helmetta Hometown Heroes by their mother, Stephanie.
"A mom couldn't be more proud of these two young women," Stepahine Murawski said. "They are so giving and unselfishly risk themselves to save others, always placing others a priority above. They are true humanitarians."
Both sisters are in their early twenties and are putting their time and energy during the coronavirus pandemic into the Jamesburg First Aid Squad. Mallorie is a deputy chief for the squad. She works hard to keep the emergency vehicles disinfected and fully stocked with the equipment needed to keep both the squad members and patients safe in addition to answering calls. JC is a student at Montclair State University. She is majoring in Early Childhood and Art Education. Along with being a Jamesburg First Aid Squad member and a student, she still finds the time to be active with local YMCA youth programs.
The two sisters are also animal lovers. They take great joy in fostering abandoned kittens along with taking care of their own cats. Mallorie has a pitbull named Morkie and JC has a bulldog named Alfie.The pair enjoy being fur-moms to the four-legged members of their family.
