Was your organization aware that funds RMHC awarded to SALF were intended for the purposeof providing first aid training to students in these or any other Chicago Public Schools? If so,would you please provide details?3) From an August 2005 grant request submitted by SALF to the Chicago Public Schools:
The Save A Life Foundation is requesting the financial assistance for its on-going work to provide professional training of life-support first aid skills for 10,000 grade childrenwithin the Chicago Public Schools.The scope of this request would include:1. A supportive grant of $75,000 to SALF from the Ronald McDonald's
HouseCharities for continuing its work in training Chicago Public Schools children to beemergency prepared should they face an unexpected man-made, natural or personal emergency with life supporting first aid skills.8. The total cost of this project will be $100,000 of which SALF requests $37,500 RMHC $37,500 Global $37,500 and $25,000 from the Chicago Public Schools.
Was your organization aware of or in any way involved with this or other SALF funding requeststo the Chicago Public Schools? If so, would you please provide details?4) From your April 8 letter to me regarding a 2004-06 grant for which, as I understand it, RMHCand Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana awarded a total of $125,000 to SALF:
In this particular case, a local Chapter representative visited several classroom training sessions orchestrated by Save a Life Foundation, saw the training being provided was substantially similar to the grant proposal, and was satisfied that children were receiving information and education that would indeed provide skills to assist in the event of amedical emergency. The representative informed Ronald McDonald House Charities, Inc. that she observed several training sessions. Therefore, Ronald McDonald HouseCharities, Inc. believes the funds were spent in accordance with the grant request.
How many of these “orchestrated” classroom training sessions took place? What were the datesand locations?5) Was Louise Palvig Edwards the RMHC Chapter representative who attended these“orchestrated” training sessions? If not, who was that representative?6) What was the substance of SALF's grant proposal and when was it dated? Did it include anymention of the Chicago Public Schools?
