SUFFOLK COUNTY SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT DELIVERS HUNDREDS OF WINTER CLOTHES TO HOMELESS VETERANS


Employees of the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department collected several dozen articles of clothing and shoes for the New England Shelter for Homeless Veterans. The Office of Communications & External Affairs at the Sheriff’s Department coordinated the effort with employees and the Shelter.

"This is the third clothing drive we’ve had at the Sheriff’s Department and employees continue to be incredibly giving," said Sheriff Andrea J. Cabral. "With the record-breaking cold we’ve already had this winter, employees were generous with their donations, knowing the clothing would come in handy to those less fortunate. I am very proud of the employees’ efforts."

Sheriff Cabral began the Winter Clothing Drive at the Sheriff’s Department to help address the great need throughout Suffolk County for winter clothing and supplies for the homeless. As weather and budget conditions worsened this winter, there was an even greater need of donations from organizations for clothing and supplies.

The Department also conducts a clothing drive in the spring.
