77 Cribs Received for Cribs for Kids
On Tuesday, we received a very large shipment of cribs to continue our infant safe-sleep initiative across our counties. Thanks to a Cribs for Kids/SIDS Association of Western New York matching mini-grant and the Garman Family Foundation, we were able to purchase 77 safe Pack ’n Play cribs for distribution to local families in need through our Cribs for Kids program.
 
We ran into a little trouble accepting such a large shipment at our new location on North Union Street in Olean since we do not have a loading dock or forklift. But I’d really like to thank Mazza Mechanical Services for allowing us to have it delivered to their loading dock, and Trans Am Ambulance Services for helping us to efficiently transport the cribs back to STHCS. It's great living in a community where other organizations will happily lend a helping hand.
CRCF Funds Stop the Bleed Kits
A big thanks to the Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation for funding our Stop the Bleed program. With this grant, we will partner with Mercy Flight of WNY to purchase 31 bleeding-control kits for placement at strategic locations in Cattaraugus County. These lifesaving kits, which include items like tourniquets and packing gauze, will be available based on need to entities that participate in training. By leveraging additional outside funding, staff from STHCS and Mercy Flight are able to provide these trainings in the community for free. If you’d like to schedule a training, please contact STEMS Coordinator Alicia Broadbent at stems@sthcs.org.
 
Stop the Bleed was founded in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in hopes of providing more equipment in public places and training to prevent deaths from mass violence, occupational disasters and other severe injuries. In any scenario, we aim to continue building community capacity to respond.
