The Mortgage Centre in Woodstock will join with Andrew’s Legacy Fund to help continue to bring automated external defibrillators (AED) to the community.

Andrew’s Legacy raises money to have every school, soccer field, baseball diamond and community centre in the Thames Valley District School Board to have an AED on site. Each AED costs about $2,000.

“I am pleased to be donating $50 from each mortgage closed with us to this very worthwhile cause,” Julie Brenneman, principal broker and CEO of the Mortgage Centre in Woodstock, said in a release. “I would encourage anyone to look at supporting this charity in memory of Andrew.”

Andrew Stoddart was a 15-year-old student at Ingersoll District Collegiate Institute who played football, track and field and soccer. While playing soccer in Kintore on May 11, 2015, Stoddart collapsed and people attempted to resuscitate him until the fire department arrived with an AED.

The release said the Mortgage Centre in Woodstock joins with a local charity each year. Last year they donated 120 toys to Operation Sharing.
