Florence, AZ – Pinal County Attorney James P. Walsh donated $5,000 from RICO funds to the San Tan Valley’s Copper Basin YMCA in support of the Strong Kids & Families Campaign. The money will be used for scholarships to the YMCA for needy children.
“In these tough economic times we are doing our part to support our communities,” said James P. Walsh, Pinal County Attorney. “Some of the money and property seized from criminal activities is used to help our children avoid drugs and gangs.”
The YMCA provides child care, day camp, aquatics programs, youth sports and recreation, teen programs, and much more. The area is unincorporated. Most people moved here in the past 10 years. The facility opened in March of 2005.
Financial assistance makes it possible for every boy, girl, adult, and family to participate in YMCA programs.
“We hold our Strong Kids Campaign annually and hope to raise $64,000 this year,” said Operations Director SaraBeth Levrets.
