SPOKANE, Wash. — The Spokane Parks Foundation announced that the Spokane community helped raise $4,386.20 for the Make a Splash in a Kid’s Life program.

The program provides funds and increases access to life-saving swim lessons, along with drowning prevention and water safety swim clinics for at-risk and low-income youth.

The fundraiser was supported by The General Store, which also helped purchase swimsuits for program participants.

Every spring, the Spokane Parks Foundation and The General Store raise money to provide free swimsuits for children in need. The Spokane Parks Foundation will be picking up the many boxes of swimsuits from the General Store at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday.

Through Make A Splash in a Kid’s Life, the Foundation also funds free open swim opportunities and community pool parties for low-income youth each year.

This program depends entirely on donations from the public. If you would like to make a donation, you can do so here, or by texting “parks” to 202-858-1233.
