We are requesting a matching grant totaling $3,000.00 ($1,500.00 from the Garden Grove Rotary Club and $1,500.00 from District 5320) for the purpose of upgrading or replacing two or more Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) in the Garden Grove community. These AEDs were donated by the Garden Grove Rotary Club to various community organizations and facilities (e.g., senior centers, sport leagues, service clubs, City of Garden Grove and Garden Grove Unified School District) to saves the lives of persons with sudden cardiac arrest. Since the initial donations, some of these units are now in need of repair or replacement. This project will enable existing community organizations to continue to use their AEDs for life saving purposes.
This project will take place between October 2022 and April 2023, with 2-3 volunteers from the Garden Grove Rotary Club ordering parts/replacement units and coordinating installation.
