Bottle Water Drive with Starbucks to kick-off Mission Heat Relief efforts

February 28, 2011

I’ll admit the weather these past few days has been more Seattle-like than we Phoenicians are used to, however; it makes it the perfect day to announce our annual water drive with Starbucks officially starts TODAY.  For the next three weeks, local Starbucks will be collecting bottles and cases of water to benefit the Phoenix Rescue Mission’s heat relief program.

When temperatures climb into triple digits, the Phoenix Rescue Mission’s Hope Coach begins providing heat relief to the homeless. Traveling alleyways and under overpasses, the Hope Coach hands out bottled water, sunscreen, clothing, hats and meals to homeless men and women at-risk of dehydration. This early water drive and partnership with Starbucks allows us to collect bottled water to begin heat relief efforts on May 1, 2011. 

The drive runs from February 28 to March 22, 2011. Donating is as easy as ordering a Venti-half-caf-tripple-shot-mocha-latte. Just bring a case of bottled water, any brand or size will do, into a participating Starbucks (the list of stores is below) or simply purchase a bottle of Ethos water and place it in the basket by the register.

The last day of the drive will culminate into the annual Walk for Water on World Water Day. Starbucks will host the event at Arcadia Park on March 22, 2011 benefiting Hope for Kids and Phoenix Rescue Mission. This is a great event and Phoenix Rescue Mission will be out there collecting cases of water. I will be posting more information on the Walk soon.
