Prince George’s County Police Sponsor Six Houses for 23rd Annual Christmas in April

Prince George’s County, Maryland… The Prince George’s County Police Department announces the huge success of the 23rd Annual Christmas in April program that occurred Saturday in various locations throughout the County.
Christmas in April, is a nonprofit organization that repairs homes for low-income and disabled homeowners at no cost to them.  Since 1989, members of the police department have volunteered to help rebuild and repair homes in their community. This year six homes were identified and sponsored by the program.  Over one hundred sworn and civilian personnel volunteered their time and services to conduct repairs on these homes.  The volunteers worked on the homes located in College Park, Upper Marlboro, Palmer Park, Oxon Hill, Clinton and Beltsville.
“Every year the police department works closely with community members to identify citizens who may need a helping hand in performing small repairs to their homes and property”, said Chief Mark Magaw.  “I am grateful to those who take time from their busy lives to participate in this program, it means so much to the community.  It’s equally gratifying to the volunteers who participated”, added Chief Magaw.
