The coat drive was a major success! The Takoma Park Police Department collected approximately 500 coats or more to help those in need this winter. Thank you so much for your generosity. We are not collecting anymore coats right now and are in the process of transporting the coats we do have to the local church for dissemination. What a coat drive! Again, thank you for your generosity. Together, we definitely made a difference!
