On February 24, the Brooksville police department and the Police & Kids Foundation participated in a charity community event helping a family in need in Brooksville. For 4 months officers of the department have been working with the family of 13, including 4 very young children making their home and property safer for the children. This included a new roof by A Ready Roofing. Today Brooksville police officers and firefighter along with citizens, business owners and hernando high students completed the next huge step in this effort by cleaning up the property. This effort filled up two large dumpsters of trash and three huge roll off dumpsters with old tires. Next weekend some much needed siding is going on the house and in the near future the house will be painted. The Brooksville police department is very proud of our cities generosity and would like to thank all of the volunteers and businesses who donated their time, money and love to help make today's event a great success.
