Thousands of dollars are out of the hands of criminals and into the hands of a youth group based out of R.L. Taylor Community Center, thanks to the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office.
On Tuesday, July 16, Sheriff Tom Knight presented a check for $3,000 to Brothers and Sisters Doing the Right Thing, a non-profit group that provides tutoring and summer camps for local kids. The money comes from funds forfeited by criminals.
“I’m always happy to support organizations that provide positive, character building activities for young people,” Knight said in a news release. “When we can use money seized from criminals to better our community and support programs for young adults, we’re also doing the right thing.”
