Young athletes from the Eden/North Collins Little Loop Football team will be safer during practices and games with the addition of an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) to their first aid supplies.

The youngest residents of our town will benefit from the purchase of new cribs at Eden Kinder Care. 

All of these improvements made possible by a grants from the Eden Community Foundation.
