Our work to help Bisbee residents lower their water usage continues with a donation of toilets to a local non-profit group.
Step Up Bisbee is a building repair program for low-income community members and
area charities. Each year, about 10 residences are selected to be worked on for one day. Some 100 volunteers then turn up to caulk, paint, replace windows, carry out roof repair and more.
This year, the organization would like to include water fixture upgrades in the homes it visits, which is where The Cochise Water Project can help.
We delivered low flush toilets to Step Up Bisbee, to be installed at the households it chooses to help. Additionally, toilets will be upgraded at a number of local non-profits, including the Verhelst Recovery House. Pictured above are Grady Meadows, of Step Up Bisbee, Tim Cervantes, of TCWP, and Cado Daily, of Water Wise, during the delivery of toilets to Verhelst Recovery House.
"Although we offer low flush toilets at a reduced cost as part of our rebate program, there are still low income families who cannot afford to do it," said TCWP Executive Director Pat Call. "We were delighted to be able to make a difference to both those residents and the local water supply by donating toilets."
