Fall is here and temperatures are definitely dropping. Winter is around the corner. 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 COPS Unit is leading the department’s effort this year. We are seeking clean, gently used coats and jackets. All sizes, colors and shapes are welcome. Last year, the department collected 699 coats and we’d love to get even more this year! Our collection effort will end on Monday, November 24, 2014.
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.
