Free season passes were issued by the Town of Marana on Friday, thanks to a donation.
The Town of Marana and the Foothills Optimist Club partnered with the community to provide 200 free season pool passes for low-income families in the area.
The passes were distributed to families at the Ora Mae Harn Park in Marana.
The passes were purchased through a $2,000 donation. TriSports Racing and TriSports.com also contributed toward the $2,000 donation from the club.
The contribution provides summer-long passes to qualifying children. This is the seventh year the club has supported the program, raising its overall contribution to $14,000.
The Town passed out 140 total passes last week.
