The Huntington County Sheriff’s Department presents a donation of $500 to the New Life Meal Ministry after a fund-raiser allowed deputies to grow out their beards for the month of November. Each HCSD member paid $20 for the privilege. Celebrating the donation on Wednesday, Nov. 27, are (front row from left) Butch Williams, of the Huntington County Emergency Management Agency, Sheriff Chris Newton and Bob Burnsworth, representing the Meal Ministry; (second row from left) deputies Austin Smith, Jamin Sands, Tony Hipskind and Dave McVoy with Zeek; and (back row from left) deputies Carter Horne, David McElhaney, Dave Jackson, Jim Wall, Jason Wohlford and Bob Jeffers of the Huntington County EMA.
