7-Eleven donates to Phoenix PD’s cadet program



7-Eleven’s Project A-Game has donated $3,000 to the Phoenix Police Foundation to assist young people interested in law enforcement.

“Raising funds for the Phoenix Police Department’s cadet program is one of the ongoing missions of the Phoenix Police Foundation,” said Timothy Thomas, president of the nonprofit organization.

“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 at 24th Street and McDowell Road.

The money will go toward helping 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,” Cindy Salsbury, senior area lead at 7-Eleven, said. “We want to support our youth that are going to be our up-and-coming law enforcement.”

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,” according to 7-Eleven officials.
