Homeless Served through Gratiot County Hope House to Benefit from AED Donation
An Automated External Defibrillator (AED) machine was purchased to support those served by the Gratiot County Hope House thanks to contributions given to the MidMichigan Health Foundation. These gifts came from donors who designated their donations to help meet community needs in Gratiot County.
Nathan Workman and Jake Gregory (holding AED), co-executive directors of the Gratiot County Hope House, accepted the equipment. Also present were Julie Kramer, assistant, MidMichigan Health Foundation and Shanna Hensler, B.S., M.S.H.A.L., community health specialist, MidMichigan Medical Centers in Gratiot and Mt. Pleasant.
“We’re working together in our county to help address the homeless needs of roughly 600 people in a county of just 40,000,” said Gregory. “Our mission is simple; meeting the needs of Gratiot County with compassion, hope and grace and we appreciate the support such as this AED machine to help us do so.”
