El Paso County Sheriff’s Office deputies assigned to the East Montana Patrol Station presented scores of books to the 3rd graders at Red Sands Elementary on Monday, September 12th, 2016.
Three hundred 3rd-grade National Geographic Reading Books were donated anonymously and deputies coordinated with Red Sands Elementary to present the books to the students.
