The Prince George's County Drug Policy Coalition, Inc in partnership with Suntrust Bank (now Truist) was delighted to share the evening with bank executives to support our 13 scholarship award honorees. Ms. Sharol Henry (Vice President and Sr. Branch Leader) other bank executives Ms. Leslie Rush (Camp Springs Branch), School Board member Edward Burroughs, and some of our student honorees and parents were back in the area to accept their "care boxes" from the Indian Head Highway Branch. The care boxes included dormitory supplies needed by the students (such as: towels, sheets, socks, soap, hats, scarfs and gloves etc.)
To promote drug policies and laws that embrace the public health nature of drug abuse and provide a more effective
and humane approach to address the chronic societal problem of drug abuse.
