Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Fund: Donate today and save a heart!

AED_open_cutoutSudden cardiac arrest is one of the leading causes of death in the U.S. Over 350,000 people will suffer from sudden cardiac arrest this year . It can happen to anyone, anytime, anywhere and at any age. An AED is the only effective treatment for restoring a regular heart rhythm during sudden cardiac arrest and is an easy to operate tool for someone with no medical background.

Time is of the essence:

The average response time for first responders once 911 is called is 8-12 minutes.

For each minute defibrillation is delayed, the chance of survival is reduced approximately 10%.

Special donation envelopes with red hearts will be available at the church for your donation.
