Check out that Aqua Angel tree at Memphis Pool. Many thanks to our friends at Memphis Pool who are being Aqua Angels this holiday!
What better gift could you give than the gift of water safety? We all know how important it is, especially for children, to learn how to swim. However, many can...not afford swim lessons. That's where you come in! Memphis Pool is working with Splash Mid-South to bring water safety to kids in need.
Become an Aqua Angel by coming into one of our supply stores, taking an ornament from our lovely Aqua Angel tree, and donating $50 for a child to receive swim lessons!
We need your help sharing the gift of water safety this holiday season. With a $25 donation, you can be an Aqua Angel. Each gift provides two weeks of free swim lessons to a local child. Go to one of Memphis Pool's stores in Memphis, Germantown or Collierville to give your gift. Thank you for helping us make our community safer for kids!
