Mayor Leeser donates monthly salary to Miracle League
El Paso, TX (KTSM) — Kids with special needs will be ready to play ball this spring thanks to a generous donation from El Paso Mayor Oscar Leeser and his wife, Lisa Leeser.
Leeser donated his monthly salary of $2,500 to the Miracle League of El Paso. Miracle League is a non-profit organization that gives kids with mental or physical challenges an opportunity to play on a baseball team.
The money will pay for new equipment.
"It's incredible, the feeling that I have right now, it's hard to even explain. The hugs and the smiles I get today are hard to replace. You can't put a value on them," said Leeser, following the donation Saturday.
Leeser made a commitment to donate his monthly salary as mayor to different charity groups in El Paso.
