London Police assist The Backpack Program of Laurel Co.

On Wednesday March 24, the London Police Department was proud to volunteer with the Backpack Program of Laurel County.

Officers and staff packed over 1,000 bags, two weeks worth of food, to be distributed to hungry children right here in our own county. Additionally, the LPD donated all of the proceeds from its “No Shave January” fundraiser to this charitable organization.

The Backpack Program of Laurel County currently serves over 1,000 children across all schools within the county, helping to feed the estimated 25-30% of children going hungry on weekends. Please consider donating your time and/or money to this organization that helps to locally support so many in need.
