On Monday May 15th the Brown County Sheriff’s Office was very thankful to be a part of “Project LEO”. 

For Hospital Week, which is celebrated every year in May, the Hiawatha Community Hospital initiated this effort as one of their community service projects and collected blankets, toys, coloring books and crayons, stuffed animals and back-packs for law enforcement to give out to children in need. 

When a child has experienced a traumatic event, items such as these can make a positive difference in their life.  By having these items available that children can keep and take with them, it gives them a sense of hope. 

Through the generosity of the Hiawatha hospital staff who organized this event, we will be forever grateful.  This is a wonderful project and will help many children in our county.
