Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton, City Officials Call for Water Donations to Help Homeless, Others During Blistering Summer Months

Take advantage of grocery stores' Memorial Day sales to stock up on cases of bottled water you can donate to the City of Phoenix for distribution to the homeless, seniors, people with disabilities, youth and others in need.

The city collected and distributed more than 210,000 bottles of water last year between June and September.

Mayor Greg Stanton, city council members and officials will kick off heat-relief efforts on May 29 with the annual "Call for Water."

Companies and individuals are encouraged to donate bottles of water at the City Hall Atrium, 200 W. Washington Street in Phoenix.
