Company Awards BCSO $2,500 Grant
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office has partnered with Brevard County State Farm insurance agents supporting the “Celebrate My Drive” initiative to keep teens safe on the road.
State Farm has awarded the Sheriff’s Office a $2,500 grant associated with the Celebrate My Drive campaign in support of the Sheriff’s Office teen driver education and safety programs.
The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office offers the Teen Driver Challenge, Brevard S.T.O.P.P.E.D., and the Sheriff’s Driving Simulators to local teens to promote driver education, awareness and hands-on driver training.
Throughout the State of Florida, State Farm has funded more than $50,000 in similar grant.
“Inexperience is a major factor in teen automobile accidents and the programs that the Sheriff’s Office offers, such as the Teen Driver Challenge, go a long way in providing that needed experience behind the wheel to make our teen’s safer drivers, said Brevard State Farm Agent Dan Adovasio. “ The local State Farm agents would like to thank the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office for all they do to save the lives of our local teens.”
The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office is appreciative of the assistance.
“The Brevard County State Farm agents have been extremely supportive of our programs and I can’t thank them enough. Our programs would not be as successful as they are, were it not for partnerships such as this,” said Lori Chabot, who coordinates the teen driving programs.
