Both Rotary Clubs are collaborating with Barrington Area Unit District 220 to get a kit into all public and private classrooms in the area. They're working to raise $16,340 within a month to buy an additional 430 kits to accomplish the goal, said Barrington Rotary member Trudy Wehren.

Last year, the Breakfast and Noon Rotary Clubs combined to purchase 184 bleeding-control kits for District 220 classrooms. Organizers also want kits in Barrington-area parks, the library and other public spaces.

District 220 created a section in its online store to directly accept donations for the kits at stbbarrington.com, then will handle purchasing and distribution. Training will be provided to employees on how to use the kits with support from the Barrington Fire Department.
