TASKS, Inc. Donates to Versailles Schools

TASKS, Inc. (Teaching About Safety Kids Style) recently donated money to Versailles Schools for the purchase of 12 Anti-Choking Training Vests and the associated training curriculum. All 6th grade students at Versailles receive instruction on how to perform abdominal thrusts on a choking victim (commonly known as the Heimlich Maneuver). However, teaching the proper technique is difficult due to the risk of injury if performing the thrusts on a non-choking person. The acquisition of these anti-choking vests provides hands on skills training in a safe manner, protecting the “victim” from unintended harm. These vests contain an air bladder with foam plug that requires the trainee to use proper technique to dislodge the foam plug. If the technique is performed correctly, the foam plug will be expelled.

With this reward to Versailles Schools, TASKS, Inc. has donated nearly $4,000 to Versailles Schools and nearly $13,000 to a total of five county schools for CPR, AED, and related training materials. In its 3+ years in existence, TASKS, Inc. has awarded nearly $39,000 to Darke County organizations with an eye to providing youth safety education.

As a 501(c)3, any donations made to TASKS, Inc. are fully tax deductible and supported with a receipt and thank you letter from the organization. If you would be interested in donating to TASKS, donations may be sent to TASKS, Inc., 28 E. Ward St., Versailles, OH 45380. If you have any questions about our organization or the programs we would support, you may contact Scott Garrison at 937-371-1249.
