06/08/12 - Brainerd Kiwanis Club awards Institute with $1,000 donation
On Friday, June 8, Craig Ingvalson, director of development for the Institute, accepted a $1,000 donation from the Brainerd Kiwanis Club.
The gift will be used to help fund the cost of an Automated External Defibrilator (AED) for the Early Learning Center at East Brainerd. If a situation were to arise when CPR would be required, use of the AED device dramatically decreases the probability of permanent damage to the brain. The state of Tennessee does not require the presence of AED devices in childcare centers, but the Institute believes it's important and plans to train staff to use it properly.
A big thanks to the Brainerd Kiwanis Club for their support of the Institute and our kids!
