Sam Royer, Director of Heroes First Home Loans Flagler Beach, is pleased to announce the company has donated $13,000 to the Flagler Beach Fire Department, the Flagler County Fire Rescue and the Palm Coast Fire Department to sponsor the purchase of 12 ballistic fire vests. A check presentation with all three organizations will be held at the October 4th Flagler Beach First Friday event at 6:00 p.m.
“Flagler Beach Fire Department Captain Stephen Cox came to me about the vests and we brainstormed on how to raise the money to purchase them,” said Sam. “My wife and I donated $10,000 personally and we raised another $3,000 from raffle tickets sales for a wooden American flag piece of art,” he added.
“I wish we didn’t have to worry about firefighters needing bullet proof fire vests, but we are fortunate to be able to donate the money for the purchase of these vets to protect these Heroes. My wife and I truly love this community and we are blessed to both run business’s in it. It is our duty to honor these Heroes” said Royer.
