Young Brevard County Citizens Partake In ‘Give A Cop A Cupcake Challenge’
By Wayne Ivey, Brevard Sheriff // July 27, 2016
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – This past week Tommy, Madison, Camden, and Adriana of Port St. John decided to bake cupcakes for the Deputy Sheriffs who patrol their neighborhood to keep them and their families safe.
The four of them worked diligently to not only bake the cupcakes but to then deliver the beautifully decorated cupcakes to Sgt. Domenic Prisco and Deputy Brandon Phillips who were excited to receive the very gracious gift but also to get to interact with the kids for a while.
Our team is so honored to serve in Brevard County where acts of kindness and love like this take place.
We are blessed to have a community that loves us and protects us just like we love them and work hard each day to keep them safe.
Please join me in thanking Tommy, Madison, Camden, and Adriana for their act of kindness and support of their Deputy Sheriffs in Brevard County.
I would be remiss if I didn’t ask you to join me in also thanking their parents who like so many other parents in our community have taught their kids compassion, care, and respect for Law Enforcement Officers.
And yes, in case you were wondering both Sgt. Prisco and Deputy Phillips are in trouble for not bringing the containers of cupcakes to my office for me to sample!
