ALBION – The staff at the Orleans County Department of Social Services wore blue in honor of Child Abuse Prevention Month.

“April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and serves as a reminder for our community to come together to support, strengthen and celebrate families,” said Cynthia Stumer, deputy commissioner of the DSS.

The staff wore the shirts on April 12. The county DSS receives about 800 referrals a year through Child Protective Services.
