LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) — The ‘Hill City Wranglers‘ are gearing up for Sunday’s snow and ice by doing something nice.
The Jeep Wrangler club is offering free rides to essential workers and emergency personnel going to and coming from work on Sunday, Jan. 16 and Monday, Jan. 17.
According to Club President Jason Morris, “Jeeps and Jeep people are family, so we just decided to give everybody a helping hand because a lot of people don’t have four-wheel drive; they can’t get to work.”
The organization started nine months ago and currently has about 200 members. They’ll have several Wranglers out in the snow Sunday from dusk to dawn, offering their services. Some members are also scheduled to offer rides on Monday.
“We just appreciate what they do for everybody in the community, so we want to do what we can do to help them out. Safety for those people is a priority,” said the club’s vice president, Tony Belcher.
They say there’s no set time. All you need to do is give the Wranglers a call or send them a message through Facebook.
Club members add that it’s the least they can do for those working around the clock healing and protecting the Hill City.
The group already has some pickup and drop-offs on their schedule for emergency workers. You can reach out to the Jeep club on Facebook or contact a Lynchburg hospital or emergency room for more information.
