Honor CU Foundation Supports Purchase of CPR Kits in Upper Peninsula Schools
The Honor Credit Union Foundation presented the American Heart Association a $1,000 donation to support the purchase of CPR kits in Negaunee, Marquette and Gwinn area schools in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
According to the American Heart Association, Michigan will become the 35th state to require CPR training in order for students to graduate from high school effective the 2017-2018 school year. The American Heart Association has a project to place CPR kits in area schools to assist students in their CPR training and reached out to the Honor Credit Union Foundation for support.
“CPR training is something that you don’t ever want to have to utilize, but being prepared and educated could make the difference in someone’s life, very literally,” commented Jamie Gollakner, Honor’s Negaunee Branch Manager. “Helping students learn the importance of CPR training makes for a safer community.”Go to main navigation
