Anonymous donor pays it forward--WCSO summer campers benefit

An anonymous donor recently paid for a week's worth of craft supplies for the Walton County Sheriff's Office summer camp, saying they were doing it to remember officers killed in the line of duty.

WALTON COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP)-- When two deputies recently went on a weekly supply run to the craft store, they received a very pleasant surprise.

According to a news release from the Walton County Sheriff's Office, Lieutenant Robert Gray and Sergeant TJ Brooks were making their weekly stop at Michael’s Craft Store in Destin to buy crafts for the ongoing summer camp put on by WCSO.

The total cost of the crafts was more than $125 total and had been completely paid for. The receipt was given to them along with a note that read:

“In memory of Bill Myers and the fallen in Dallas, just want to say thank you for all you do.”

WCSO said it was an overwhelmingly kind gesture.

"All of us at the Walton County Sheriff’s Office are so appreciative of the kindness and outpouring of support from those in our community. Without you we are at a loss. We are committed to serving the people of Walton County along with all of our visitors.

To the person who paid for this long list of supplies for the children of our county… we thank you."
