The Brown County Sheriff’s Office is reaching out to the community to help keep high-risk patients safe during the COVID-19 emergency.
Brown County Sheriff John Merchant has announced his deputies will offer a delivery service of necessary items to elderly, those with a disability or is in a high-risk category to contract the coronavirus.
“I just felt we needed to make sure we have steps in place to take care of those who aren’t able to take care of themselves,” Sheriff Merchant said.
Deputies will deliver medicine or groceries. All they need is your name, birthday and an address for where your items need to be picked up from.
Sheriff Merchant said the items have to be retrieved from Brown County businesses and be delivered within Brown County.
“I am asking that you only use this program if you truly have a need as our resources could be limited,” he said. “A big thank you to everyone who has been selflessly helping others, by working together we will get through this. Please call if you have any questions.”
Call (785) 742-7125 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday-Friday.
