The Arizona Department of Public Safety’s Gang and Immigration Intelligence Team Enforcement Mission visited El Mercado de Guadalupe earlier this month to deliver and assemble donated sports equipment for children in the community.
With help from Dick’s Sporting Goods, board members of the Arizona Gang Investigators Association, Tempe Officers Association and several donations from individual law enforcement officers, detectives were able to donate numerous recreational items and more.
The project included two full-size basketball hoops, several basketballs, soccer balls, footballs, soccer goals, jerseys, cones and multiple coolers and ice chests, according to DPS.
“GIITEM will continue actively working with the Guadalupe community to build relationships and steer kids away from criminal street gangs, drugs and violence,” DPS stated on its website.
