Over the last 20 years we have raised nearly $725,000 and given 100% of our profits to organizations, mostly supporting youth and education and Community Health (with our Heart Safe Program offering free training to citizens in “hands only” CPR and use of AED’s We have trained over 6500 area citizens in these lifesaving skills so far and have confirmation that our efforts have saved at least two lives. We have also donated AED’s to several community locations.
 
In 2020, focus was placed on food shelves at Interfaith Outreach, PRISM and Second Harvest Heartland and the Food Group as residents struggled more than ever to feed their families with rampant unemployment. We also focused on our local long-term care facilities by supplying, programing and training to use technology to many of these long term care facilities so they could do Facetime or ZOOM meetings with family members who weren’t allowed to visit in person. We also provided a weekly “touch” consisting of individually wrapped snacks, candy, arts and crafts supplies, etc., items designed to boost the spirits of both residents and staff when we were all so isolated.
 
With this year’s profits we will continue to give scholarships to areas students, fund grant requests to organizations focused on kids and education and continue to support the Heart Safe CPR training. 
 
Join us at Plymouth on Parade this Saturday, September 18th!!

The unveiling of Maple Plain's Veterans Memorial Park was Saturday. Several community organizations have worked together on this project over the past couple of years, including Plymouth Rotary Club and the Rotary District 5950.
 
   
 
The COVID-19 pandemic hasn't changed the fact that bystanders play a crucial role in improving survival rates for cardiac arrest. But providing potentially lifesaving CPR requires extra considerations amid the coronavirus crisis, according to temporary guidance from the American Heart Association.  Plymouth Heart Safe will resume free hands-only CPR and AED training this fall and we will update here.
