Make A Splash In A Kid's Life!


to Spokane Parks Foundation
It's that time of year again. Children want to cool down in local pools but some don't have the family income to buy a pass or a swim suit.

Come down to KHQ from the 1st of June until the 11th of June and bring a new swim suit for boys and girls, 1 yr old – 16 years old and swim diapers.
Many free pass Friday's throughout the summer are available. See below.

June 11th from 8:00am - 10:00am you can stop by the station and meet with some of our talent while you drop off a suit.

Thank you so much for caring and sharing.

    On June 6 Spokane Parks Foundation will begin distributing passes and swim suits to our partners throughout Spokane County – ensuring that children from struggling families aren't locked outside the gates, watching the fun. Kids just want to be kids. They shouldn't have to worry about whether going to the pool will make it harder to pay the bills. And with your help they won't have to.>>
