The American Heart Association recognized VanDyk Mortgage at the May 22, 2017 Rockford Board of Education meeting for donating CPR Training Kits to the Rockford Public Schools. The kits are being used in 9th grade health education classes to provide students with hands-on CPR education. It is hoped that over time, thousands of people will have learned this important life-saving skill as a result of this program.    Please click here to learn more about the AHA’s CPR in Schools Training.
