The Humanity Project starts June 2011 with a huge thank you to the Broward Sheriff’s Office. Once again. For the second consecutive year, BSO has awarded a major grant to the Humanity Project. This time around, they’ve even increased the amount so we can help many more people in our community. (The money given to us comes from funding set aside by state law for this purpose, by the way.) BSO is the largest fully accredited sheriff’s department in the United States. Sheriff Al Lamberti and his large team grapple with an enormous task every day, not only protecting the citizens of Broward County — home to about 1.8 million people in South Florida. BSO also works with vast numbers of community organizations, citizen groups, schools and nonprofits to help prevent crime. The Humanity Project and BSO are, for example, active partners in our efforts to stop school bullying and reduce gang activity.
We work together on several committees as well as in the schools and out in groups around the county. We’ve developed a wonderfully close relationship. In fact, BSO is the Humanity Project’s official “major community partner.” So once more we must thank Sheriff Lamberti and all our other terrific colleagues and friends at BSO. We hope you’ll take a moment to check out BSO’s extensive website at http://www.sheriff.org. You’ll also find this link on the Humanity Project website at the top of our permanent page called “Sponsors/Community Partners.” Broward Sheriff’s Office is helping the Humanity Project to make a real difference … just as BSO itself also makes a real difference throughout the year.
