Join CAPS’ for their annual Children’s Rally at the Elkhart Civic Plaza on Wed., March 27, from noon to 1 p.m. Mayor Tom Neese, Magistrate Deborah Domine and CAPS President and CEO Melinda Konrath-Fielding will reveal the current state of child abuse as it relates to Elkhart County.
The public is invited to attend and asked to wear blue symbolizing child abuse awareness. Participants are also encouraged to bring a sign showing how they currently support or plan to support children and families in the following year. Working together as a community we have managed to keep our rate of child abuse 65 percent lower than Saint Joseph County (Indiana) and 48 percent lower than the entire state of Indiana. Let’s continue to strive for record-breaking numbers. Every kid deserves a happy, healthy childhood.
