Join us for our 6th Annual Water Drive!
You can contribute by showing up with a case (or 10) of water, donating to the company’s Venmo account (@PhoenixStaff) and they will get the water themselves, or having water delivered to the office (address below). Whatever is easiest for you, but they would certainly love to have you stop by and say hello if that is in the cards at all.
With record-breaking temps hitting the valley, keeping our fellow Arizonans hydrated is even more important this year. All water donated will make it to organizations that ensure it gets to those in need. Last year they collected over 13,000 bottles of water and would love to CRUSH that number this year!
Thursday August 3rd, 4:30 – 7:30 PM
11011 S. 48th St, Phoenix, AZ 85044
A heartfelt thank you to everyone who has shown their support in previous years. Together, let's make this year's water drive the biggest and most impactful one yet!
