Last year our Agency pulled through big-time during our bottled water drive- collecting and donating 68,000 bottles of water for thirsty homeless folks. This month we’re having our 2nd annual Water Challenge with a goal of 75,000 bottles by the end of June.
If we meet the goal of 75,000 bottles collected in June, we’ll all get to wear jeans on Monday, July 2nd – but more than that- we’ll know that we did a good thing. The water will go to the homeless and be distributed through food banks, cooling stations and outreach groups.
There’s an amazing need for bottled water in Arizona – whether it is for the homeless who live out in the heat or for those who reach out for a cool place to stay during the blistering heat. You can help too. We have information on our heat website ab0ut how to stay cool and how to donate water. If you find someone who needs help getting out of the heat, you can call 211 from anywhere in the state to find the closest resource.
