Chandler CPR Fundraiser

Next week you will have the opportunity to do your Good Turn by helping one of our scouting families AND earn your CPR/AED certification at the same time!

Colton Chandler is a Web II from Pack 271 and his mom Kim has volunteered in Pack leadership positions and helped out at many district and council functions. Colton’s dad Tim drove a truck and died suddenly (out of state) last week after he was hospitalized for a lung infection.

My family has known Kim, Colton and Tim for many years, and they are ‘good people’. We’d like to help them out and I hope you would, too. So, next week on Monday October the 29th and Thursday the 1st of November from 6-9pm, my business, Healthcare Education Resources, at 625 N. Willis in Abilene will be offering American Heart Association CPR/AED classes for $35 with $30 of that registration to go to the Chandlers to help with monthly bills not covered while Tim was hospitalized and Kim was with him and unable to work. The other $5 will pay for your card and manikin face shields.

If you need CPR certification for your Pack, Troop or Venture outings, if your employer requires it as part of your job requirements, or you just want to be prepared for cardiac and choking emergencies, please consider taking it now and helping out a friend in scouting. I would be happy to set up a mobile CPR class at your business if you are a business owner and you’d like to offer the class to a group of your employees. There is no definitive age requirement, but to receive your card you must be able to perform 2 minutes of CPR, pushing at least 2″ in depth on a manikin’s chest, and in general, most children aren’t strong enough to do that until age 12 or 13.

If you need Healthcare Provider level CPR (professional) please let me know so I can set up a separate class with the additional equipment for you.

And, if you can’t come, please forward, post or pass this information along to your family, friends and fellow workers, and encourage them to come. Call and let me know who’s coming so I have the right number of manikins set up.

Yours in Scouting,

Melissa Woodard RN, CEN
