The Kokomo Police Athletic League (PAL) has received a donation from First Bank of Berne in the amount of $1,000.
Corina Aguirre, bank branch manager in Kokomo presented the check to Mark Snodgrass, executive director of the Kokomo Police Athletics League, earlier this month.
PAL is a nonprofit, mentoring, crime prevention program sponsored by the Kokomo Police Department. The league was created to make sure that no youngster who wanted to participate in their sports programs, regardless of social or economic circumstance, would be excluded. They feel that all youngsters should be provided an organized outlet for their energy. Volunteers help sponsors kids who are unable to pay.
The Police Athletic League functions solely on sponsorships, donations, fundraisers and sports registration fees. PAL is a volunteer based program with 100% of their money going back to the youth in the sports programs.
