Mesa, AZ – About five to 10 people are turned away daily at Mesa pools because they don’t have proper swimming attire.
 
“We started this campaign about four years ago when we noticed a lot of kids were coming to the pools with no swim suits,” Aquatics Coordinator, Aimee Manis said.  “We are asking the community if they can donate any new or gently used swim suits from now until the end of the swim season.”
 
Mesa Aquatics is in need of boy’s youth swim trunks in any size and color as long as it is in good condition.  Swim suits can be dropped off at the Mesa Parks, Recreation & Commercial Facilities Office, 200 S. Center St., Building No. 1, Mesa, AZ 85201.
 
These suits will be made available at each Mesa pool for customers who show up with no swimming attire. Under the Mesa City Code, all customers must wear proper swimming attire when using any Mesa pool facility.
 
For more information please contact Aimee Manis at (480) 644-4950.
