DKG serves communities

At its meeting on September 13, the Delta Theta Chapter of women educators selected as its project the collection of stuffed animals to be used by law enforcement officers in Holmes, Washington and Jackson counties. The stuffed animals can be kept in cars and available for the officers in the event a child is involved in a situation responded to by local law enforcement. The animals collected at the meeting in September were presented to Justin Jenkins, investigator for the Washington County Sheriff’s Department. Future collections will be shared with law enforcement agencies in Holmes and Jackson counties.
