Tuesday, November 24, 2020
The Theta chapter of Delta Theta Tau presented a $500 check Tuesday to Putnam County EMS toward a Safe Haven Baby Box to be installed at its headquarters in Greencastle. Chapter members Nancy Andis, Patricia Hoopengarner, Rita Ferguson and Ella Marie Torr give the check to Putnam County EMS Chief Kelly Russ (center). Personal gifts of $1,200 from active and associate members also came from the chapter, making the total donation amount to $1,700.

  • That is so awesome. Such a great service to help babies be safe if the mother thinks she cannot care for the baby. There are so many couples that would be ecstatic to adopt one of these babies.

  • The box is great , however --The Safe Haven law states that a baby can be surrendered to any Fire Station, Police Station , or Emergency Room. The baby may be surrendered anonymously { in a way that prevents a person from being identified by name ).
