All the thanks should go to the Union Hill Church volunteers and the deputies who donate their time for this program,” he added.Treats for Tots is an outreach program developed in response to children who, for various reasons, were taught to be fearful of law enforcement officials.The focus of the program is to alter young people’s perceptions of law enforcement officials by interacting with them in an atmosphere that promotes trust.The program is especially geared toward at-risk children.Rogers frequent encounters with frightened children during the performance of his duty was the driving force behind the development of the program.“Children need to know that they can trust us and turn to us when they need help,” Rogers said.“Initially the program provided toys that the Sheriff and deputies kept in the trunks of their squad cars to give to children they encountered during arrests or investigations,” said Kimberly Browning, a Treats 4 Tots volunteer, “Sheriff Rogers keeps track of the most at-risk kids, he visits them and checks to see how they’re doing.”The Toys for Tots campaign eventually led to Treats for Tots and a five week Summer Boot Camp in each of the county villages.last_img read more

EDS NOTE: OBSCENITY – Black Lives Matter Plaza, near the White House, is quiet early on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2020, in Washington. (AP Photo/Alex Brandon) Crowds gather at Black Lives Matter Plaza near the White House on Election Day, Nov. 3, 2020. Amid boarded-up downtown businesses and increased “anti-scale” fencing around the White House, hundreds gathered at Black Lives Matter Plaza to rally and await the results of the 2020 presidential election Tuesday.The rally unfolded relatively peacefully throughout the afternoon and evening except for a few scuffles, but as crowds were dispersing shortly before midnight, a group of several hundred protesters began marching elsewhere throughout the city.WTOP’s Alejandro Alvarez reported that this group consisted of “black bloc” protesters, who tend to be more radical and often conceal their identities. He said the protesters launched flares as they wound their way through the streets, many carrying black umbrellas to shield their faces from the cameras.Earlier in the afternoon, it was a very different scene as hundreds of people, including members of Shutdown DC And Black Lives Matter DC, gathered around the White House. Alvarez said the event was not a coordinated rally. Rather, people were mostly waiting for the election results and watching coverage of the races on projection screens that had been set up at Black Lives Matter Plaza and McPherson Square.Alvarez noted that many organizers said they would wait until the results were in before deciding what to do next.At times the mood was festive, with people dancing and singing, but frustrations were also on display.Gabriel Pietrorazio — one of the University of Maryland student journalists covering the elections for WTOP — spoke to Don Folden, founder of Capital Buddy Tours, who said he hopes the political divisiveness ends after the 2020 election.“What I’m trying to do is get people to stop hating each other because they disagree,” he said. “It’s interesting because some of the people who hate each other like the same music. They have a lot of things in common, but they only focus on what they don’t have in common.“This division, this hatred – it’s got to stop.”By the time Alvarez returned to the BLM Plaza around 1:30 a.m., he said about 100 people were still milling around, including members of the media. But with the presidential race essentially in a dead heat and inconclusive, the mood was far more somber than it was earlier in the day.
