WOMEN BEHIND THE BADGE CALENDAR BIG HIT

BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Members of the Brevard County Professional Firefighters invited Camp Amigo Director Rusty Roberts to town so the Firefighter Benevolent Association could present his organization with a check worth $11,000.
According to Camp Amigo, the funds will be used to help offset the financial burden of providing a place for children burn victims to just “be themselves.”
Aside from being able to be themselves, Camp Amigo exists to provide kids who have physical and emotional scars a place to build a network of support that will last throughout their lives.
Camp Amigo is fully funded by private donations and the campers stay free of charge.
The Women Behind the Badge Calendar idea was thought of by a few local firefighters and law enforcement officers.
This small dream quickly became a reality as the Women worked around the clock on their off-duty hours to make the project a huge success.
Women from fire and law enforcement agencies all across Brevard County came together to support Camp Amigo.
