MINNEAPOLIS -- Cub Foods here has made a $10,000 donation to Allina Hospitals & Clinics' Heart Safe Communities program, to help fund Take Heart America, a national initiative to improve the odds of those who suffer sudden cardiac arrest.
Cub Foods and Allina first joined forces earlier this year when Allina’s Heart Safe Communities program facilitated the installation of Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) in 75 Cub Foods stores throughout the region. Allina Medical Transportation trained employees in every store in basic CPR skills as well as AED administration. Since February, Cub Foods stores have been named “Heart Safe.”
“For Cub, the installation of the AEDs resulted from a customer being saved in our local New Brighton store,” said Brian Huff, Cub Foods president. “Nothing is more important than the customers we serve each and every day.”
Established in 1968 as one of the nation’s first discount grocery stores, Cub Foods was purchased in 1980 by Supervalu. It operates 55 stores in the Twin Cities.
