The El Dorado Community Foundation - Friends of Seniors Fund, has offered to provide grant funding to cover the cost of purchasing an AED machine in the Placerville Senior Center located at 931 Spring Street. The AED is intended to reduce the risk of death for those who visit the Placerville Senior Center, which would include the seniors as well as employees, volunteers, and others who may frequent the Placerville Senior Center.
