SUBJECT: Sleeping Bags Donated
RELEASE NUMBER: 2023-NR-0215
CONTACT: Major Matt Corn
AUTHORITY: Sheriff Noah Robinson
The Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank Pastor David Whitmore of Catalyst Church for donating 20 zero degree sleeping bags for people without homes or in need. All of the sleeping bags are new and were donated by members of the Catalyst Church at 3232 Claremont Ave. The idea behind the donation is to give patrol deputies the ability to provide a free sleeping bag to an individual in need. The sleeping bag would then serve as an emergency bed, providing warmth and comfort, in the event shelter or other housing was unavailable.
