A Heartfelt Gesture

Salvation Army 

February 14, 2013 -After winning an AED Plus® from ZOLL in a drawing last fall, Gordon Burnside had a decision to make. As a condition of the drawing, the winner had to donate the AED to a charity of his or her choosing. Burnside chose the Salvation Army of Bay City, Michigan, and recently presented the AED to Major Mike Myers. Burnside, who is corporate safety director at Pumford Construction in nearby Saginaw, told the Bay City Times, “I picked Salvation Army because I think they do great work, and it was on their wish list.”

The Salvation Army Community Center is used every day by a wide variety of people, from the 150 men and women who visit the soup kitchen each day to the kids who come for after-school tutoring and other extracurricular activities in the evening. Monthly food giveaways draw as many as 1,000 people to the building.

ZOLL frequently holds drawings to give away AED Plus units.
