American Legion Post 108 recently donated funds to the Cushing Police Department to assist in the effort to keep young children safe from harm’s way.

The Cushing Police Department is currently coordinating an annual Child Safety and Drug Education program for the children in this community. Using materials carefully selected by the department, the program will teach children vital information and facts to help keep them safe and healthy. The materials provided by the National Drug & Safety League (NDSL) will be distributed by the Cushing Police Department this fall to children in kindergarten through high school.

According to Police Chief Terry Brannon this is the only program of its type that the department will sponsor this year.

If you are interested in making a donation toward the purchase of these materials, please contact Terry Brannon at (918) 225-1212.
