DINWIDDIE – On February 8, 2018, Gerald Mann, Treasurer for Dinwiddie Moose Lodge # 1993, presented Dinwiddie County Sheriff’s Office with a donation of $500 to the National Child Safety Council.
The mission of the National Child Safety Council is to prevent needless accidents and to help save lives by providing local law enforcement agencies with meaningful safety educational materials and programs for children, adults, and seniors.
Dinwiddie County Sheriff’s Office participates with the National Child Safety Council in their annual fundraising drive where proceeds are used to provide these educational materials to be used by our deputies in our schools, county fair, and other public events.
Sheriff D. T. “Duck” Adams wants to express his sincere thanks to all who contributed to the National Child Safety Council fundraising campaign this year. “These generous donations will ensure that the deputies will have the materials needed to get our message of safety to our most valuable resource, our children. I want to offer a very special thank you to Dinwiddie Moose Lodge 1993 for their continued support of Sheriff Office programs. They have been a great partner and I look forward to continuing that relationship.”
