MESA, Ariz. -- Arizona officials are asking for swimsuit donations to benefit low-income residents.
Officials from the City of Mesa said they often have to turn children away -- mostly boys -- from public swimming pools because they don't have proper swimming attire.
The state's third-most populous city said it is accepting swimsuit donations through the end of summer.
City leaders said swim trunks in any size and color and in good condition are welcome.
The suits will be made available at each Mesa pool for residents who show up to use the pool without proper swimming attire, which is required under city policy.
