Members of Prevent Child Abuse of Marshall County gathered for their monthly meeting at the Plymouth Public Library this week.


Members had to select a new president and vice president due to the fact that both Haley and Michael Kittrell have jobs that deal with children in Marshall County. Because of that they resigned their positions. April Cooper will serve as president and Diane Fisher will be vice president.

Members then packed 500 bags that include a brand new onesie that urges parents to place their baby on its back for sleeping while the front of the onesie reminds parents and caregivers not to shake the baby provided by a grant from the Marshall County Community Foundation. Also included in the bag is a safe sleep baby book provided by WIC and a number of information pamphlets.


Every baby born in the county will receive a bag with 350 bags being delivered to Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center in Plymouth and 150 to the Community Hospital in Bremen.
