CORNWALL, Ontario - Do you have any soft dolls like a Cabbage Patch doll? Consider donating it to St. John Ambulance, you could help them teach others how to save a life.

Currently, St. John Ambulance in Cornwall only have one doll to use for teaching in their babysitting courses, which can have as many as 18 students.

The dolls are also used in their Home Alone and New Parent courses and St. John Ambulance is hoping to get at least 20 doll so that all of the students in their courses have an opportunity to learn hands-on.

All dolls that are to be donated can be dropped off at the front office of St. John Ambulance, which is located beside Cornwall electric on Sydney St.

St. John Ambulance gives back to the community through training and all they ask for in return are donations and volunteers so they can continue to offer their lifesaving services.
