As the summer heat approaches, please join St. Joseph the Worker in keeping homeless individuals hydrated. Consider hosting a water drive or donating bottled water.
- Summer temperatures will reach 120 degrees.
- In 2007, there were 50 heat-related deaths in the Phoenix area.
- Homeless individuals are especially susceptible to heat-related illness and death.
- Water will go to St. Joseph the Worker and the Human Services Campus, which provide services to over 1,000 homeless individuals each day.
My aunt has committed to collecting 200 cases, I just purchased 6 cases @ Smart and Final. If you are in the Phoenix Area, please considering donating to this cause. If you are interested in a pickup, we can arrange a meetup!
