Jon Draper, Program Coordinator for the Eddie Eagle GunSafe® Program, wrote this article about a couple new Eddie Eagle costumes that have popped up in Florida.
The Eddie Eagle mascot costume program is starting off 2012 at a great pace and has already made sure that two brand new Eddie Eagle mascot costumes have found new homes with law enforcement in Florida!
The Dunnellon Police Department and the Lake City Police Department are extremely appreciative of the grant funding that they received from the NRA Foundation to purchase these costumes. The new costumes will undoubtedly have a lasting positive effect on the children in those areas.
The funding for the costumes, $2800 each, was awarded to the departments through an NRA Foundation Grant with funds raised by the Friends of NRA in Florida.
We strongly encourage all law enforcement agencies to improve their Eddie Eagle presentations by applying for an Eddie Eagle mascot costume grant through the NRA Foundation.
