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.
In Kind and Volunteers!
50 preselected kids will meet with police officers and get free back packs full of school supplies and $20 gift cards to payless at Flicka’s Cantina. They family, kids, and cops will all enjoy a light dinner by Flicka while they interact with the police officers.
Thank you AES (Arizona Elevator Solutions)…Another great sponsor and partner for AZLEOS Back Pack to School event this Sunday at Phoenix Children’s Hospital providing our police officers a chance to enjoy an ice cream social with the kids receiving radiation for cancer and sickle cell anemia and give them backpacks and share stories with them.
Thank you Jamie Harbach Mezosi for buying all the backpacks and binders to be delivered to the kids at Phoenix Children’s Hospital this Sunday. And that handsome little helper is Jane D’Amelio’s nephew, Blake Mezosi. Blake volunteered to stuff and organize the backpacks. The kids at PCH will love them!! ❤️
