County Officials Prepare Holiday Food Baskets

The baskets were distributed Tuesday to senior citizens in need in Bladensburg.

Monday morning did not find Prince George’s County Executive Rushern Baker in a meeting or being briefed by his staff. Instead, Baker joined public safety officials in filling holiday food baskets for those in need this holiday season.

Coordinated by the Public Safety Assistance Program (PSAP), the baskets filled by Baker and others were among those delivered to senior citizens in Bladensburg this morning, according to a press release. Public safety personnel also visited with students at Riverdale Elementary this morning.

Around 3,000 holiday food baskets will be distributed in Prince George’s County by the PSAP this year to support families who are unable to afford a holiday meal, according to the press release.

PSAP is reliant on monetary donations. The organization has several corporate sponsors, but individual supporters also are welcome. Tax-deductible donations can be mailed to: FOOD, P.O. Box 548, Upper Marlboro, MD, 20773.
