Code:Red Summer Heat Relief
May 1, 2018 - August 31, 2018
In anticipation of what could be its hottest summer ever recorded, the Code:Red Summer Heat Relief has begun! The program, which will run until August 31, is dedicated to providing food, water, and other heat relief to the elderly and homeless population in the Valley of the Sun.
Men, women, and children experiencing homelessness are at risk of dying from excessive heat, a fate that 114 individuals fell victim to in 2017 in Phoenix.
Here's how you can help:
- Organize a water drive - challenge your co-workers, family, friends, or church to join you in providing life-saving water this summer to those who need it most.
- Volunteer - there are plenty of opportunities at the Phoenix Rescue Mission to make a difference in the lives of those we serve. See our latest volunteer opportunities HERE.
- Donate - If you live in Arizona, you know costs rise in the summer time. From air to energy, man-power and extra equipment, our summer time costs are high. Make your greatest impact by simply donating. Because of a generous donor, your GIFT WILL DOUBLE thanks to a matching grant! Make your donation HERE.
Volunteer drivers will help the Hope Coach Outreach program to deliver needed items to the Valley’s homeless and elderly population. Drop-off sites that accept donations of heat relief items like hats, sunscreen and water are located throughout the city.
