PGPD Collecting Coats for our Neighbors in Need

Summer is gone and before we know it, Old Man Winter will be here, bringing along cold temperatures. The Prince George's County Police Department is once again partnering with the One Warm Coat Organization to collect coats for those in need in our community.  The District II Police Station is leading the department’s effort this year.  We are looking for clean, gently used coats and jackets.  All sizes, colors and shapes are welcome.  Last year, the department collected hundreds of coats and we’d love to get even more this year!   We are starting our collection effort on Friday, October 18, 2013.

One Warm Coat is a national non-profit organization that supports and encourages coat drives. It helps individuals, groups, companies and organizations across the country collect coats and deliver them free of charge to people in need. More than 1,000,000 coats have been collected since 1992.
Collection boxes are set up at locations throughout Prince George’s County including at the six PGPD district stations. Please refer to the One Warm Coat Website: for more information or contact Corporal Jessica Mercer at
