Thanks to the Hand Me Up Shop and the Copper Area Health Volunteers, the Ray School District is ‘Heart Smart’ as well as head smart.
On Aug. 21, member of the Copper Area Health Volunteers presented the school district with two Heart Smart Defibrillators for use at the Ray High School in the athletic program. According to the Arizona Interscholastic Association (AIA), it will soon be mandatory for all schools to have them available.
The defibrillators were purchased using proceeds from the Hand Me Up Shop.
“All of the proceeds that are received by the store go back to the community. We felt this was a great project to use our funds to place them where needed. Previously the H.M.U.S. has placed these same units in the surrounding schools, as well as the Senior Center in Hayden,” a representative of the CAHV told the Copper Basin News.
“A huge shout out to our community, who keeps us filled with great donations and also to those who continue to shop with us. We appreciate your support and giving us the ability to fund these programs,” the spokesperson added.
