Sheriff’s Office Partners with County’s Public Safety Assistance Program for Children’s Coat Drive

Upper Marlboro, MD…  The Sheriff’s Community Partnerships Section partnered with the Prince George’s County Public Safety Assistance Program last week to deliver over 260 coats to children at several Prince George’s County Public Schools.

The Knights of Columbus donated the coats to the Public Safety Assistance Program, and they were distributed to students at Riverdale, Mount Rainier, and Baden Elementary Schools.

Bill Milligan, Coordinator for the County’s Public Safety Assistance Program said, “This program was a success because of the assistance we received from the Knights of Columbus. There are lots of happy, warm kids coming to school today.”

Colonel Darrin Palmer, Chief Assistant Sheriff, who helped deliver some of the coats said, “The Sheriff’s Office couldn’t be happier to partner with the Public Safety Assistance Program to deliver coats to students who need them.”

“Too many children spend the winter months without adequate clothing to keep them warm, but hopefully with this coat drive we’ve helped some of the students who needed it the most,” Col. Palmer said.
