AED Fundraiser Update

Thank you, Family of Christ, for your support towards our AED Fundraiser. Through your participation and generosity with the Emergency Glass Breakers, we have raised $382 towards our goal.

Due to an overwhelming response, we sold out of the Glass Breakers and have another order coming in within 3-4 weeks. Thanks to those who signed up for the next order and if you still want to purchase one, please email or call Ariana.


How can you purchase one or more?
