The DuPage County EpiPen program received a donation of 40,000 dollars to help save lives.
The Annie Legere Foundation presented the money Tuesday.
The foundation was established in memory of 13-year old Annie Legere of Elmhurst who died last year after having an allergic reaction to something she ate.
The EpiPen auto-injectors have a chemical to help keep people from going into shock and even dying from an allergic reaction.
Starting January 1st, all DuPage County Sheriff's deputies will carry EpiPens, thanks to a new law that allows them to administer the live saving drug.
