Erlanger Western Carolina Hospital auxiliary group provides CPR training materials to Clay County Schools
Murphy, N.C. – Granny’s Attic, an Erlanger Western Carolina Hospital (EWCH) auxiliary group, recently provided 12 new CPR training mannequins to Clay County Schools. This contribution was one of the community health needs accomplished through funds raised at the Hayesville thrift store.
Clay County Schools offer CPR training classes to both students and employees. The classes are led by Clay County school nurses who are American Heart Association instructors.
“Erlanger is proud to be able to contribute to community health education in this way,” said Erlanger Western Carolina Hospital CEO Mark Kimball. “CPR can drastically improve a person’s chance of survival. We hope these materials will help our local schools in the training efforts of this lifesaving procedure.”
Granny’s Attic is a non-profit organization run solely by volunteers. The store, which sells donated clothing and small household items, contributed its annual earnings to several local organizations, including $55,000 to EWCH.
Granny’s Attic is located at 200 Highway 64 West in Hayesville and is open Wednesday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
