On Jan. 24, 2017, the University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business was pleased to donate more than 80 stuffed animals to the Prince George's County Sheriff's Office as part of their “Teddy Bear Partnership.” Officers will use the stuffed animals to help comfort children who are involved in domestic violence service calls.

The school’s Office of Development and Alumni Relations (DAR) organized the collection, which took place at the annual alumni holiday gala in December. Sheriff Melvin C. High and Colonel Darrin C. Palmer, who is a proud Terp, received the donation in Van Munching Hall.

“We’re delighted that the generosity of the Smith alumni community contributed to such an important program of the Prince Georges County Sheriff's Office,” said Allison Schwarz, executive director of alumni relations at Smith.
