The Hennepin County Sheriff's Office has the horrible task of finding drowning victims. Because they have removed the bodies of too many children of color from local lakes, they have teamed up with the Minneapolis Park Board to offer low-cost swimming lessons to vulnerable families.
The sheriff's spokesman knows that lack of swimsuits has been a barrier for some kids taking lessons so he has organized a drive to collect gear.

It's not often that the stuff pushed to the back of the drawer, waiting for the next yard sale, or simply piled up somewhere can save a child from drowning.....Think of yourself as a lifesaver as you share those suits!
