The John Mack Foundation, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a $3,500 grant by The Stewart W. and Willma C. Hoyt Foundation, Inc. of Binghamton, New York.
The grant will be used to donate automated external defibrillators (AEDs) to community non-profit organizations.
John Mack was a 17-year old Binghamton High School student who died in 2006 when he was struck in the chest by a stick during a lacrosse club match. The facility where the game took place did not have an AED.
An AED can restart the heart of someone experiencing cardiac arrest. It provides easy-to-understand voice prompts to guide the user.
