Durham Police Department Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) Partnered with White Star Laundry
On Saturday July 22nd, the Durham Police Department Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) partnered with White Star Laundry to provide clothing to the homeless. White Star Laundry hosted their annual yard sale event to sell off clothing items that were never collected from them after being cleaned. Lt. D. Campbell was able to secure vouchers to allow Durham’s homeless residents to obtain 3 clothing items at no charge. Lt. D. Campbell, Master Ofc. R. Thomas, Ofc. K. Hunter and Ofc. D. Beckett handed out the vouchers and assisted in searching the clothing racks for the desired sizes and styles. At the end of the event, White Star Laundry donated many leftover items to the CIT department so they can be handed out to the homeless at a later date.
