100 Women bring CPR training to local schools

• Sep 26, 2017 at 1:00 PM

This summer, the Tri-Cities Women Who Care selected the American Heart Association to receive checks totaling $26,000.

The donation directly supports Grand Haven and Spring Lake high schools by funding a recent state mandate requiring CPR training for every graduate.

The Women Who Care group purchased the CPR in Schools training kits, empowering students to learn the core skills of CPR, choking relief and AED skills — all in one class period. This easy-to-use educational kit developed by the American Heart Association is designed to specifically meet the needs of schools. It is portable and reusable, allowing for easy storage and convenient transportation from classroom to classroom.

Tri-Cities Women Who Care, formerly known as 100 or More Women Who Care, is an alliance of local women whose purpose is to help charitable organizations in the area by streamlining fundraising. The women meet quarterly for one hour, hear presentations from local organizations, and then vote to determine which agency receives their checks.

Since its inception in September 2010, the group has awarded more than $780,000 to local organizations.

The group is open to all and welcomes new members at any time. The next meeting is at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 30, at Spring Lake Country Club. For more information, call Cindy Anderson at 616-846-7981.
