MCPF and MCPD's Chief J. Thomas Manger (Ret.) Thank Second Genesis for Support in Preventing Opioid-Related Deaths
On March 28, 2019, Montgomery County Police Chief J. Thomas Manger (Ret.) along with Marvin Address, President, and Thomas McElroy, Assistant Secretary of the Montgomery County Police Foundation (“MCPF”) extended their thanks and appreciation to the leadership team of Second Genesis Foundation, Inc. (“Second Genesis”) for their support to reduce opioid deaths in Montgomery County, MD. Bob Carlstrom, Chairman Emeritus and John Troha, Treasurer with Second Genesis, visited with Chief Manger at his offices just prior to his retirement after 42 years as a police officer, the last 15 years as the Chief of the Montgomery County Police Department (“MCPD”).
Chief Manger expressed his appreciation to Second Genesis for their willingness to provide funding to strategic community initiatives. First, Second Genesis supported the “DARE” education program for elementary students. Secondly, Second Genesis supported additional Narcan Kits to be used by MCPD officers to prevent opioid overdose deaths. MCPF is glad to partner with both Second Genesis and the MCPD to prevent opioid overdoses and to expand awareness of this public health crisis in Montgomery County.
