Salina women make group to support parents

Last December, a Salina baby was found unresponsive in his home and was pronounced dead at the scene. Jordan Corbin's parents were charged with the murder of the young baby. Desirah Overturff plead no contest to a first-degree murder charge on Wednesday and Nicholas Corbin is scheduled to appear in court for his arraignment June 23.
In response to these events, Cindy Monts and Britney Campbell set up a Facebook page called Jordan’s Helping Hands. It is an outlet for parents to ask for items they may need like blankets, formula, diapers or clothes.
It started when Campbell needed to get rid of some items after she moved out of her home. One of the babies she helped was Jordan. It was initially supposed to be a one-time event, but it expanded and after Jordan’s death they named the group after him.
“That would be our way of letting everybody know that we love and care about him,” Campbell said.
In about six months, the page has more than 1,000 members.
Jennifer Mahan is a working, single mother with three kids. And she says the group has helped her out with her children.
“I work full-time and it’s just me and the girls so things are pretty hard sometimes,” Mahan said. “It’s been a godsend.”
