Adam's In The Community
By: Adam's Air Conditioning Date: 2016-07-11
Adam's Air Conditioning is delighted to support the Jessica Clinton MVP Foundation. As a successful local business, thanks to our great customers, we feel it is our duty and our pleasure to give back to the local community in as many ways as possible.
The Jessica Clinton MVP Foundation was established in 2004, honoring 17 years old Jessica Clinton, who died from an undiagnosed heart condition, while at school. For the past 12 years, the foundation has been working to provide public access to A.E.D's (Automated External Defibrillators) in our schools and communities. To date the foundation has donated approximately 75 A.E.D's with a value of $112,500! In addition to this, for the past 5 years, the foundation has been offering FREE Heart Screenings for students between 5 and 20 years of age. Since the screening's began, the foundation has screened 1,016 students detecting a total of 44 children with cardiac abnormalities.
For its latest fundraising event, the foundation teamed up with Panera Bread to offer heart shaped cookies in honor of Valentine's Day, of which the foundation received all of the profits to invest in more AED's and heart screening! Our very own Ray Lalloo helped man the booth at the Port St Lucie West location, raising not only awareness of the heart condition, but money for the great cause too. Well done Ray!
