MLK Day CPR+AED Training and Community Partner Fair a Success!

by | Jan 16, 2024

A heartfelt thank you to everyone who made our inaugural Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service an incredible success!  With over 100 attendees, our community came together in the spirit of service and unity.

A big shoutout to Senator Katie Muth and Representative Danielle Friel Otten and their teams for energizing us with their presence and active participation. Both legislators, in addition to Senator Carolyn Comitta and Representative Christina Sappey who attended last week’s 6th grade school-wide training, have worked with us to put forth legislation for AEDs in schools and CPR training for school staff and coaches. Your commitment to community engagement truly inspires us!
