BRAINTREE − Defibrillators for city structures and products for the nurse’s office environment at the new South Center College will be donated to the city by a foundation commenced in memory of a slain member of the board of wellbeing who was a longtime university nurse.

The $15,000 donated to pay out for the nurse’s business office furnishings and 5 defibrillators for town and school buildings is from the Laurie Melchionda Foundation. The city council voted unanimously to accept them at Tuesday night’s assembly.
