"We think your program is amazing. We are both full time law enforcement officers
here in Florida- I am at a high school that is in a very low income area and
Anthony works on a robbery/drug suppression team in the projects. We see youth
daily challenged with the streets and which way to turn. I sat on duty in a gym
rec center on Friday night and watched some of our kids play basketball. I called
home to Anthony and said this is Steve's club. I took of my gun belt and joined
them on the court. Now I stand 5'3 and cannot play bball to save my life. But I
had more fun laughing and playing with them. So often these kids just need to see
that someone does care about them.
Your program is incredible and has helped me grow as a cop. I look at the kids
that you deal with, much greater level than ours, and think what a true hero you
are to these kids.
We are proud to help support your club and hope to continue to help your kids.
Not to mention your products are very yummy!!!
We thank you for giving us as a box to help your kids!" - Alison D.
Thanks for the awesome testimonial Alison. You've hit the nail on the head!! Sometimes its really hard to convey on this blog but I couldn't agree more with her statement. Caring goes a long way. Just being there is not enough either. You must genuinely show interest and care about kids like they are your own. I think this is a huge part of working with kids and young teens. I think at the end of the day they respect and look up to me for that. They not only see that I care by taking the time to train them, but they know that I care by taking an active interest in their lives and taking the time to let them know I'm here for them if they need advice or guidance.
