Cape Coral Police “Project Lifesaver” Receives Generous Donation

(April 11, 2013)- The Cape Coral Police Department’s “Project Lifesaver” program has just received a tremendous donation from the Sons of Italy Cape Coral, Charles J. Bonaparte Lodge #2504.

Sons of Italy member Dolores Bertolini delivered a $3000 check to the department Wednesday afternoon. The money will go to maintaining existing and purchasing new equipment for the program.

Project Lifesaver is a program whereby law enforcement is able to track and recover individuals who wander off and become lost. Those affected are generally those who are elderly suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s disease as well as younger members of the community with Down’s syndrome or Autism and are prone to wandering off.

Cape Coral Police have made successful recoveries of individuals because of Project Lifesaver. This sizable, generous gift will ensure that the program continues in Cape Coral.

“Project Lifesaver is a program that is truly near and dear to my heart and I was thrilled to be able to deliver the check to keep it going”-Dolores Bertolini.

“We’ve had a partnership with Mrs. Bertolini for many years and we are grateful for her generosity and that of the Sons of Italy, Charles J. Bonaparte Lodge #2504. Project Lifesaver is just that…a lifesaver for this community”-Lieutenant Tony Sizemore.
