Spokane Parks Foundation Awards $5,000 Grant to the Spokane Sheriff/Spokane Valley Police Activities League
This week, the Spokane Sheriff/Spokane Valley Police Activities League received a helping hand from the Spokane Parks Foundation by way of a $5,000 grant. The Spokane Sheriff/Spokane Valley Police Activities League works to bridge the gap between Officers/Deputies and potential at-risk youth in our community through fun and educational summer activities.
With the start of the second year of the Spokane Sheriff/Spokane Valley Police Activities League approaching, the $5,000 grant awarded by the Spokane Parks Foundation is a welcomed and much-needed addition to the program.
The Spokane Parks Foundation, whose mission is to cultivate the health, growth and continued enjoyment of our communities by inspiring giving and passion for our parks, grant will be used to sponsor youth during multiple activities throughout the summer and several different park locations.
The Spokane Sheriff/Spokane Valley Police Activities League is also partnering with the HUB Sports Center to provided elementary school-aged students the opportunity to interact with Officers/Deputies in a safe, positive environment while participating in games and other activities.
We are incredibly grateful for the Spokane Parks Foundation Grant and our partnership with the HUB Sports Center. Their assistance allows us to reach out to our area youth in a positive, fun and educational way while enjoying the many parks facilities in our community.
Sheriff Knezovich, very appreciative of the Spokane Parks Foundation award, said, “This grant will aid in our efforts to mentor our community’s future, our children.”
