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


Suffolk County Sheriff Andrea J. Cabral and the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department participated in the Annual Suffolk County Winter Clothing Drive last month to support local organizations throughout Suffolk County. Through the generous support of Sheriff’s Department employees, more than 900 items of winter clothing and blankets were donated to local charities including the Pine Street Inn, Rosie’s Place and the Lemuel Shattuck Shelter. Over 200 children’s items were donated to the St. Mary’s Women and Infants Center.

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.

Sheriff Cabral began the Winter Clothing Drive last year at the Sheriff’s Department to help address the great need throughout Suffolk County for winter clothing and supplies for the homeless and needy. Since the price of oil is so high this year there is an even greater need for donations of warm clothing and supplies.
