Sergeant Montjoy and the New Hanover County Sheriffs Office Crime Awareness Prevention (CAP) Unit raised over $25,000.00 in support of the Special Olympics. We were in Pinehurst NC to accept this award for being one of the top ten agencies in the state for fund raising. We're so very proud of him and his team for the support and the awareness of such a worthy cause. Please share to raise awareness for the Special Olympics, it really does change lives!
