The Apache Junction Mounted Rangers were at the Mesa Market Saturday, May 4 to get a donation of $222 from the USA Crew Inc., which Joan Wells organized.

Scott Sargent started the program five years ago and recently died. His brothers are continuing his passion to donate to veterans, the homeless and deserving non profits.

The USA Crew Inc. has given over $50,000 in five years, according to a press release.

The Apache Junction Mounted Rangers is a volunteer peace-keeping organization that supports children and youth by providing safety measures at various community events.

It is a 501(c)3 nonprofit charitable organization that promotes the traditions of the Old West, as well as assisting with emergency food and educational needs, athletics and musical programs, academic assistance and charitable events.

AJMR members participate in parades, memorial services and rodeos while on horseback, quad runners or foot patrol.

The Apache Junction Independent publishes a daily newsletter and website. A print edition is mailed each month to 35,000 homes.
