“The EPCC Police Department and the EPCC Service Learning Office along with the EPCC PSA Humanitarian Outreach Fund know the heart-wrenching situations that the Sheriff’s deputies encounter throughout the county when their duties take them into homes in desperate need.  By working together, we can do more than we can alone.”

The Sheriff’s Department will distribute the collected items to those in need throughout El Paso County.

Via a news release, EPCC Officials added “EPCC’s PSA shows the importance of giving back.

For several years, the PSA has held multiple drives throughout the year and will continue to help the community of El Paso.”

For more information on the EPCC PSA Humanitarian Outreach Fund, contact Cheryl Bowman at 831-6574.
