Back-to-school drive with Plattsburgh Police Dept.
PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. (WCAX) - We are weeks away from back to school, and shopping for school supplies can be difficult for some families. But the Plattsburgh police department wants to help. They’ve teamed up with Behavioral Health Services North in Plattsburgh for a back-to-school drive.
You can drop off new school supplies at the police department’s community outreach center on Margaret Street in the city of Plattsburgh. The department hopes to collect supplies for students in kindergarten through 12th grade.
Community Resource Ofc. Logan Barrett, says anyone in need can pick up the school supplies, no questions asked.
“I think as a community we’ve come together in the past and we’ve done an amazing job at helping families that work hard but just need that little bit of extra help,” Barrett said. “I think that we should support them as much as we can.”
Barrett says they will also take cash donations. The supplies drive runs through Sept. 3.
