The Central Community Foundation board, through funds received from Operation Round Up, recently approved a grant of $1,582 to the Friends Chapel Church in Coyle for the purchase of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED).
Located in rural Payne County, Friends Chapel Church is more than 15 minutes from the nearest emergency medical help. Use of the AED could make a difference between life and death in the event of an emergency.
The Central Community Foundation is a charitable organization established by Central Rural Electric Cooperative to administer a program called Operation Round Up.
