County pools this year will accept donations of new swimsuits for children. Anyone who donates will receive a water bottle commemorating this year's 50th anniversary of the Parks and Recreation Department.
"Our pools and outdoor water parks provide a fun and safe place to beat our desert heat all summer long," said Clark County Commission Chair Steve Sisolak. "Donating a swimsuit to a child in need is a great way to get the summer off to a good start for families that are struggling economically."
