‘It’s makes my heart happy when our community steps in”. says organizer Lynn Lozada of the Stop the Bleed campaign.
“This week we delivered 125 kits into the local schools. Missing from picture are 25 additional kits that were already placed and I have 100 to place today. My fingers are going to hurt after staging the tourniquets for immediate use but it is so worth it.” says Lozada.
Stop the Bleed has raised $25,795 to date, yet still need to raise $39,400 to complete the project. “We have only reached 39% of our needs”. says Lozada.
Extending a HUGE thank you to local businesses: 125 kits – Colorado River Women’s Council, Southwest Gas, San Bernardino County Local Fire Union, San Bernardino County FireFighters Association, Air Methods Careflight 1 and Careflight 6 bases, and Fairway Estates.
All tri-state area teachers will soon be trained on some life-saving methods to be used in a situation such as an active shooter or accidental trauma. The goal is to have a specialized first aid / bleeding control kit in ALL local classrooms. If you as an individual or a company would like to donate, kits are $65 each call 928-788-8717.
