Michigan store sells hearts for foundation

The Wes Leonard Heart Foundation honors the life of a local high school athlete. Dickinson True Value in Fennville, Mich., is lending a hand, helping to raise money throughout the month of March.

The store is displaying in its windows hearts purchased by customers for $1 each, according to an article in the Holland Sentinel. The money will go toward the purchase of external defibrillators in Michigan schools, according to the article.

Wes Leonard was a star high school basketball player who died of a heart attack after scoring a winning basket in a game in March 2011.
