“Orphans in Candyland”

posterini-524234341404 The town of Candyland is in trouble!  Samuel Pure, chocolate baron and benefactor to  the community, has passed on.  His great mansion has been converted into a  orphanage  and is being run by his daughter, Priscilla.  But his chocolate factory was  willed to  Priscilla’s evil sister, Serpentina, who is producing inferior candy and ruining  the entire  town!  In her greed, she even schemes to take over the Pure mansion and throw the  orphans (Emma Nems, Orietta Cookie, Baby Ruth and Chocolat Hart) into the  cold.


Child Safety / Prevention

The most common preventable ways babies and young children die are from drowning, preventable crib death, and being left with caretakers that have anger management issues and are not suited to caring for a child.  In the past three years in Polk County, we have had 36 children die due to unsafe sleep (17) or drowning (18).  Each year, these deaths account for more than 50% of all childhood deaths, both preventable and non-preventable.  This is very eye opening.

DCF has a great brochure for preventing the three most common causes of preventable childhood death:  water safety, safe sleep, and controlling emotions/anger in caretakers. You will find in the following attachments ways in which can help in preventing such disasters from taking place.
