You can donate school supplies to the Emerald Isle Police Department's inaugural Stuff the Cruiser event the first week of August. All items will supplement the Stuff the Bus donation drive that assists Carteret County students.
Items can be placed inside the designated police cruiser at the EIPD, at 7500 Emerald Drive, from August 1-5. Any items that are donated August 6-7 should be brought inside the Police Department lobby. Likewise, if you wish to make a monetary donation, please bring it into the lobby and hand it to a customer service representative.
"While law enforcement is known for protecting and serving, our department views this as an extension of serving by giving back to the community," said Michael Panzarella, Chief of Police. "Carteret County is known for its resiliency and we want to help those in need. This is our way of giving back."
