The Honey Brook Area Community Partnership announced today that $3,300 has been raised to meet its goal to buy two automated external defibrillators for Honey Brook area first responders. The first defibrillator will go to Honey Brook Police Chief Patrick Ely. The second will be donated to the Honey Brook Fire company.
On August 26 at 6 p.m., the Partnership will formally present the AEDs to the Police Chief and the Fire Company at its summer social. The event will be held at the pavilion at the Honey Brook Golf Club, and is open to the public. The event starts at 5 p.m. and will include light food and beverages. Those planning to attend should contact Renny Magill at 610-273-9333, ext. 2039 or email@example.com.
The Partnership, which was formed in 2008, involves local businesses, non-profits and individuals who are working to facilitate communication, share resources and work together to enhance the Honey Brook area.
Renny Magill, steering committee chair, reported that the contributions came from individuals and business leaders. "Even as I was collecting money from local businesses, employees were digging into their own wallets to make contributions," Magill noted. "It is truly amazing how residents in this community stepped up to help out." He noted that contributions came through coin containers placed in local businesses and directly from local businesses.
