2014 Hydrate Arizona a HUGE success --- Thank you Arizona!Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX --- A HUGE thank you to everyone who supported the Hydrate Arizona campaign in June. We raised over 185,000 bottles of water! That's nearly 60,000 more than 2013 --- WAY TO GO!
This is all to benefit The Salvation Army's Heat & Hydration Project and other civil service programs. In 2013 they gave out over 450,000 bottles of water.
The Salvation Army's provides water not only for the homeless and homebound elderly but for ANYONE who is in need of water and a cool place to escape the heat, at all of their corps on heat advisory days. Additionally, they provide water for the fire & police crews that are working on the front lines during times of emergency. Finally, they provide the opportunity for thousands of kids across the state to have their first experience at camp every summer, serving underprivledged youth that would otherwise not have the opportunity to go.
