THE BRONX - A 34-year-old volunteer ambulance group in the Bronx needs $50,000 to keep running.

The Throgs Neck Volunteer Ambulance Corps is struggling to stay afloat as donations have slowed down over the years.

The group relies on money from community members and discretionary funds from local politicians.

The corps prides itself on being able to respond to calls in some neighborhoods faster than the city's EMS, and is the last remaining volunteer ambulance in the borough.
