The Veterans Memorial Park Foundation received a
check from the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office for $5000 from the State
Law Enforcement Trust Fund. These funds will be used to support Drug
Abuse Education and Drug Prevention programs through our outreach
programs and Park Memorial events.
The funds help with the completion of
infrastructure improvement projects that enhance our ability to conduct
these educational and memorial services at the Veterans Memorial Park
where the drug prevention message can continue to be reinforced.
Funding will also be used to continue the advertisement of the counter
drug campaign during the preparation and promotion of our student and
veteran group events in conjunction with our very large Veterans Day
ceremony and Wall South commemoration ceremony in November.
