About Camden L.O.C.K.S.

We are excited to announce L.O.C.K.S. – “Local Organizers Caring About Kids Safety”! This new organization is approved by the Camden County Board of Education and is supported by the Camden County Education Foundation. Recently, we have encountered two telephone threats which the Board of Education and our security team handled very well and they kept all of our children safe. With these recent events, it exhilarated Daniel and I to create an organization that will raise private money for security upgrades in our local schools.

We are working closely with Mr. Melvin Hawkins, Superintendent of Camden County Schools. We all feel the most important need in our schools is the security at the front entrances. The first project for L.O.C.K.S. will be installing a security camera, security doors, and an intercom system at the entrance of each school. The project will cost approximately $48,000. We will complete each school as the funds are received starting with Grandy Primary.

How can you help? We believe that each individual in our community is able to lend a helping hand! In addition to monetary donations, we need your assistance with fundraisers and ideas, networking and solicitation.

We are very passionate about this new venture because we are first year school parents, with our oldest being in Kindergarten. Our hope is that the community will partner with us and the Education Foundation to support our children, teachers and our schools.

The Camden County Education Foundation will handle all of our donations, which allows each donation to be tax-deductible. Donors will be recognized through our website, Facebook and at our fundraising events.

Daniel and I appreciate you taking the time to read our letter and we thank you in advance for your support. Please feel free to contact us at info@camdenlocks.org if you would like additional information or if you have questions.

Daniel and Millicent Harrington

Daniel and I have been married for 8 years and we have two handsome little boys: Bryce is 5 (6 in july) and Cole is 2 (3 in October). Daniel is a native of Camden county and Millicent is from Perquimans County. Daniel is a small business owner and Millicent works for a Real Estate Firm in Norfolk, Virginia. Now that they have school age children, their safety is their first priority! We reached out to Karin & Andy Montero to see if their Safe School Organization also supported Camden and unfortunately it did not. The Montero’s played an instrumental role in us setting up this organization and we are very grateful!
