On September 10th the Danville Rotary Club contributed $5000, which was raised, to the Danville Fire Department for the installation of a “Baby Box”. This box will be placed at the Fire Department and babies may be placed there when a mother feels that she cannot safely care for their child. She can know that someone will immediately retrieve the child and it will be cared for.
