The Phoenix Police Foundation, an organization helping to address unmet capital needs of the City of Phoenix Police Department, recently received a $3,000 donation from 7-Eleven’s Project A-Game for the Phoenix Police Department’s cadet program.

“Raising funds for the Phoenix Police Department’s cadet program is one of the ongoing missions of the Phoenix Police Foundation,” says Timothy Thomas, president of the Phoenix Police Foundation. “These young people who are interested in law enforcement are vital to shaping the future of our communities. We are thankful to 7-Eleven for this contribution that will make an immediate impact to the cadet program.”
The check presentation took place at the 7-Eleven franchise located at 24th Street and McDowell, and the funding will go toward the greatest needs of the cadet program such as helping to supply uniforms, equipment, and competition registration and travel costs.

“7-Eleven is donating these grants because we want to be a part of the community,” says Cindy Salsbury, senior area lead at 7-Eleven. “We want to support our youth that are going to be our up-and-coming law enforcement. We are thrilled to be helping the Phoenix Police cadets.”

According to the 7-Eleven corporate website, “Project A-Game is a community outreach program created to provide meaningful youth development opportunities through education and play so children establish a strong foundation that supports their future success.”
