MCPD hosts hurricane relief drive for Bahamas

I-270

The drive will go on until Oct. 10th

GAITHERSBURG, Md. (WDVM) — The Montgomery County Police Department is hosting a hurricane relief drive for residents to donate necessities for those in the Bahamas.

After hurricane Dorian destroyed many homes and businesses, the department found a way to help by coordinating with the Bahamian embassy. From now until October 10th, the department will be collecting items such as dry food, clothes, toiletries, clothes, flashlights, batteries and more.

“Our detectives provided training to officers in the Bahamas and during that training, they developed relationships. Those items have been communicated by police officers in the Bahamas are items they see a need for at this time,” said Rebecca Innocenti, Montgomery County Police Department.
