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?
Please contact Ariana Denney at (727) 599-4737 or
