Members of the Marco Island Police Department have donated 23 backpacks, all fully stocked with school supplies, to the Shelter for Abused Women and Children. The Shelter, which provides services to Marco Island, assists more then 1,100 child victims and survivors of domestic violence through safety, intervention, and direct support annually. The project was spearheaded by School Resource Officer Al Schettino.
Marco Island Law Enforcement Officers, are happy to be able to assist the Shelter in providing children with the tools they need to learn and be successful.
