LDN -- Top Stories

Cathy Sanders (left) presents a check to Kara Davis at the Logan County Department of Public Health. The check represents funds raised by fundraisers hosted by St. John United Church of Christ. The money will purchase Narcan kits to be distributed to local first responders. This is not the first check presentation by St. Johns. Kits that have been purchased already have been distributed to local law enforcement officers, and a training session for the administration of the drug was recently hosted by the Health Department. Narcan is effective in reversing the consequences of Heroin overdose and is a proven life-saving antidote.
