NAIFA/Sheriff “Teddy Bear” Partnership Continues #PGSO

Upper Marlboro, MD… Chief Assistant Sheriff Darrin Palmer accepted over 400 teddy bears from the Prince George’s County chapter of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (NAIFA), at a breakfast meeting yesterday at The County Club at Woodmore in Mitchellville, MD. The Sheriff’s Office uses the teddy bears to help comfort small children that sheriff’s deputies come into contact with while responding to domestic violence calls for service.

“We are so grateful to NAIFA and to Gary Beall whose enthusiasm for this project is awe-inspiring,” said Chief Assistant Sheriff Darrin Palmer, who has maintained a partnership with NAIFA over the last fifteen years. “These teddy bears help to provide some comfort to children during an otherwise chaotic situation; to calm and put a smile on a child’s face in these difficult circumstances makes our job easier.”

“Our members continue to enjoy the teddy bear partnership with the Sheriff because we can all imagine a child’s distress in the face of violence,” said Tom Robusto, President of the Prince George’s County NAIFA chapter. Mr. Robusto reaffirmed NAIFA’s commitment to the teddy bear partnership, and thanked its members for keeping the drive going again this year.
