2018 Matthew Krug Foundation Donations
In January 2018, the Foundation donated an AED and AED cabinet to the Wilmington Little League (no picture).
In April 2018, the Foundation donated an AED and AED cabinet to the MOT Little League.
The Matthew Krug Foundation is happy to report that to date, five community swim clubs have applied for and received AEDs from the PAD Program. Since the PAD Program does not provide AED cabinets, The Matthew Krug Foundation provided cabinets to four of the five swim clubs. See pictures below.

2021 Matthew Krug Foundation Donations
June - August 2021 - The Matthew Krug Foundation learned that the State of Delaware's PAD (Public Access to Defibrillation) Program has relaxed its qualification criteria for organizations to receive a FREE AED from the program. After one of the New Castle County (DE) community swim clubs approached MKF relative to a possible donation, we set out to learn the AED status of the community swim clubs in New Castle County. We learned that 11 of 26 swim clubs had and AED. This was very encouraging news. Once we identified which clubs did not have an AED, Stewart Krug of the MKF visited all these swim clubs to explain the State's PAD Program. We provide the application forms and contact information for the program to each swim club.
In October 2018, the Foundation donated an AED and AED cabinet to the Tri-state Christan Academy (Elkton, MD)
