5-Year-Old Brevard Girl Holds Her 2nd Annual Public Safety Donut Stand for Local Heroes

BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Kyleigh may only be 5-years-old but she already knows what she wants to be when she grows up, a Deputy Sheriff with the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office!
Kyleigh loves cops and our partners at Fire/Rescue so much that this morning with the help of her parents she hosted her 2nd Annual Public Safety Donut Stand for Local Heroes.
Last year, Kyleigh told her parents that she wanted to give her local heroes a donut and a smile so she could show them how much she loves them and after last year’s tremendous success the only thing left to do was to follow it up again this year.
As you can imagine, the “Hero Donut Stand” got a lot of business from both our agency and our partners at Brevard County Fire Rescue as throughout the morning Deputy Sheriffs, Corrections Deputies, Agents, Citizens Observer Patrols, Fire Trucks showed up to meet Kyleigh and get Donuts.
In fact, the event was such a success last year that I made sure I personally stopped by this year to meet Kyleigh and so she could give “Junny” a donut herself!
I tell everyone that we are truly blessed to serve as Law Enforcement Officers in Brevard County where our citizens love us, trust us, and protect us just as much as we love, trust, and protect them and Kyleigh’s show of love earlier today is a perfect example of just how true that statement really is!
Please join me in thanking Kyleigh for inviting us, Kyleigh’s parents who made today possible by teaching their children to love and respect our local heroes, and of course all of the First Responders who stopped by to meet Kyleigh so they could leave with a smile!
– Sheriff Wayne Ivey
