Thursday, October 2, 2008

The Putnam County Sheriff's department is sponsoring a Haunted Trail at the county Jail on Oct. 23, 24 and 25 from 8 to 10 p.m. The cost to attend the event is a toy or monetary donation that goes to Toys for Tots.

The Haunted Trail will be located in the woods on the south side of the jail located at 13 Keightly Rd, Greencastle.

Anyone coming to the event should drive around the side of the building. You will be directed to parking.

There will also be a Halloween costume contest on Oct. 24 at 7 p.m. at the Putnam County Jail.

Prizes will be awarded for the best costume for ages 5 years and under and ages six to 12.

For more information call the Putnam County Jail at 765-653-1810.

I think it is great that the Sheriff's Department is supporting our local Toys for Tot's. But did you know that several families and their children are not helped during the holiday season as a result of so may families double dipping from the generous groups that support gift programs during the Holiday's. This double dipping results in some families doing without entirely because there is no financial support left for programs.

I encourage all of the Holiday assistance programs to release information to each other communicating whom they have helped and if possible what they have been provided. This can be accomplished by a simple disclaimer or a release of information within the application. This way, the issue of unmet needs can be partially resolved.
