We are planning for our summer program Back Pack to School! Today we purchased (300) $20 gift cards for shoes to put in each of the 300 back packs for kids in need all over Maricopa County. I couldn’t do this without the help of Right Toyota and Right Honda and Lerner and Rowe who are our major sponsors for the program. Exchange Club of Scottsdale will help to purchase some of the supplies and most importantly assemble all of the backpacks. MCCCD PD Officers will coordinate working with local PDs in the Valley to host ice cream socials or lunches with the kids to give out the back packs and spend time having fun and socializing with the kids in their communities.
Your donations are always welcomed and appreciated. azleos.org. The more donations we receive, the more kids we can help. We are 100% volunteer. 100% of your donation goes to the program.
Triple 9 Fund *999* is a program set up to provide financial assistance to the families of fallen or seriously injured law enforcement employees throughout the state of Arizona. The primary goal of the *999* Fund is to keep our best officers on the job, focused on protecting the community and fighting crime. Insurance does not always cover medical expenses for injury, especially if an officer is injured while off duty. Officers can find themselves struggling with big medical bills and the difficulty of providing for their families while they are off the job, recuperating. Making matters worse, there are few programs which offer aid in a case not involving death.
AZLEOS has officially signed up as Bronze Sponsors for this Relay for Life on April 22nd. It will be at Turf Paradise from 12pm -7pm. Please join our team to help us raise more donations to help local people who need help getting to appointments, wigs, etc. Your money stays local. We will also have a table there if you want to come out and give out AZLEOS Literature.
Our President Cindy Hill will be singing the National Anthem for opening ceremonies.
Free Ice Cream with a donation to AZLEOS. You can get any flavors of ice cream, any size cup or waffle cone, unlimited toppings. On top of that…Elsa from FROZEN will be there to meet the kids, take pictures and do face painting! Thank you Royal Dreams Entertainment!
