[ARCHIVED] County Executive Baker and State’s Attorney Alsobrooks Kick Off New School Year with Free Supplies

Free School Supplies donated by the Prince George’s County Department of Corrections to be given out at Suitland Elementary School on First Day of School

UPPER MARLBORO, MD – Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L.

Elementary schools in the County Executive Baker’s Transforming Neighborhoods Initiative areas are chosen to receive the supplies and funds are donated by employees within most county agencies and community organizations. This year the Suitland Civic Association joined in the giving.
