Delaware- During the month of August, the Delaware State Police Community Outreach Unit received numerous donations from the public and area businesses to support Operation Troopers Have Your BACKpack. The purpose of this initiative was to provide new backpacks and school supplies to children in need. As a result of the generosity of the public and our community partners, 529 backpacks were disseminated to children up and down the State. There was also boxes of extra school supplies that were donated to teachers in several school districts!
The Community Outreach Unit would like to recognize the following businesses, who generously donated, in order to make this initiative a success: Amtrak, Bank of America, Chesapeake Utilities, Christiana Hilton, Chubb Insurance, Delaware State Police Federal Credit Union, JP Morgan, Tidewater Utilities and Verizon Wireless.
Thank you to all who donated to make this year’s Operation Troopers Have Your Backpack such a huge success!
