Pasco Tax Collector's Office Raises $5,000 for Sheriff's Explorer's Post #916

During the month of March the Sheriff’s Explorers Post #916 was the featured charitable organization at the Pasco County Tax Collector’s Office.  The Sheriff’s Explorers Post #916 is affiliated with both the Boys Scouts of America and thePasco County Sheriff’s Office to help young people learn more about a possible career in law enforcement. 

“We are very fortunate for the funds raised by Mr. Mike Fasano,” commentsExplorer Major Carter Roan. “These funds will ensure the continuity of our mission of exposing youth to law enforcement, allowing the Explorer Post to purchase equipment, attend training sessions, and participate in annual state competitions.”

The Sheriff’s Explorers Post #916 has finished at the highest levels at state championships due to their disciple and expertise.  Many of the young men and women who go through the Explorer program often go on to have successful law enforcement careers.  The Sheriff’s Explorers Post #916 volunteers at the annual Farm Share Holiday Food Giveaway and other events affiliated with the tax collector’s office.  Donations totaling $5,000 on behalf of the Sheriff’s Explorers Post #916 that were collected at all five tax offices, as well as through the mail, will go a long way towards supporting their continued efforts to grow and educate the students. 

“It was with great pride that we partnered with the Sheriff’s Explorers Post #916 to help shine a spotlight on this wonderful organization,” states Tax Collector Mike Fasano.  “The Explorers, their student leader Major Carter Roanand the professional and civilian staff who work with them, are true role-models for any young person, especially those interested in pursuing law enforcement as a potential career path.  Sheriff Chris Nocco and his command staff have placed a great emphasis on promoting The Explorers in the community. We are glad that we could do our part to help the next generation of law enforcement officers learn more about the opportunities available to them.”
