Coordinated efforts from all three Downbeach police departments, along with the generous donations from the community, has provided numerous children with the ability to start the school year off right.
On Friday, Aug. 23, Ptl. Frank Lupperger of the Longport Police Department, SLEO II Donovan of the Margate City Police Department and Ptl. Quinones of the Ventnor City Police Department transported all donated school drive items to the Atlantic City PAL center.
“The Downbeach community and its officers wanted to do their part to ensure that these children are prepared to go to school with the tools necessary to achieve success in the classroom,” Longport Police Chief Frank Culmone said.
The month-long school supply drive asked residents to drop off school supplies at their local police station to be distributed to students in need through the Atlantic City PAL Center.
