SUFFOLK COUNTY SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT DELIVERS HUNDREDS OF SPRING CLOTHES TO LOCAL CHARITIES


The Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department’s held its first Spring Clothing Drive this month to support local organizations throughout Suffolk County. Through the generous support of Sheriff’s Department employees, more than 500 items of clothing were donated to local charities including Rosie’s Place and the Lemuel Shattuck Shelter and Outreach.

The Office of Communications & External Affairs at the Sheriff’s Department coordinated the effort with employees and community organizations. Through close coordination with the organizations that were receiving the clothing, the Department was able to distribute the clothes efficiently.

“As with our winter clothing drive, Sheriff’s Department employees have been incredibly giving during this clothing drive,” Sheriff Cabral said. “We tend to forget that there is still a need for clothing and supplies all year long, not just in the winter months. I am very proud of employees efforts on behalf of this initiative.”

This marks the second clothing drive this year that Sheriff Cabral has instituted at the Department. In February, more than 800 items of clothing and new blankets were collected for area charities.

“I see outreach efforts such as the clothing drives as part of our mission to give back to the communities we serve,” Sheriff Cabral said.
