INGERSOLL - Andrew's Legacy has teamed up with the Kiwanis Club to donate 5 AED's this week at different locations in Ingersoll.
The organization started after the tragic passing of 15 year old Andrew Stoddart in Kintore in 2015. He was playing soccer and it's believed an AED could have saved his life that day.
Andrew's mom Cara Schmidt says they're thrilled to team up with the Kiwanis Club this week to make the AED donations.
"We have 5 donations going into the Ingersoll area in the next couple of days. Today we donated to the Tim Horton's at the 401 and the Tim's on Thames Street South. Tomorrow we are doing donations to the Pharmasave in Ingersoll and the Foodland in Ingersoll and we are also putting one in at the Chuck's Roadhouse."
The donations were made possible thanks to a raffle the Kiwanis did in the summer for a chance to win a boat.
It's a busy week for Andrew's Legacy as they prepare for the SMILE cookie campaign next week at the Thamesford Tim Horton's location. They are the local charity of choice for the Thamesford Tim Horton's location for the second year in a row.
Last year they sold 9,645 cookies and this year the goal is to break 10,000 cookies. Smile cookies cost $1.00 each with every penny going towards a local charity of the stores choosing. The Smile cookie campaign starts on Monday.
