HSC Receives Heat Relief Grants

HSC recently received grants from three organizations to support this summer's heat relief efforts: Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust ($37,500), City of Phoenix ($25,000) and BHHS Legacy Foundation ($15,000).

The grants coincide with the HSC and its partners launch in May of the annual ThirstAid Water Donation Drive to collect much-needed bottled water that will be distributed to help keep clients hydrated and healthy during the extreme heat in Phoenix. HSC and partner organizations will hand out at least 100,000 bottles of water every month from May through September.

Multiple organizations are also hosting heat relief drives for the ThirstAid Campaign. HSC is very grateful for community donations and these generous grants to meet this life-saving need. A big shout out to our community for your support!

The Next ThirstAid Donation Drop-off

Event is this Saturday, July 1st

Summer heat relief continues as the temperatures rise and the monsoon moves in. The next bottled water donation drop-off of the season is Saturday, July 1st from 9 am to noon. It’s an easy way to help: You pull up at 15th Avenue & Harrison Street, and staff will remove donations from your vehicle. We also welcome travel-sized toiletries, summer clothing, shoes, new men's/women's underwear, hats, sunglasses, sunscreen and lip balm. For more information or to schedule a drop-off on a different day, please email [email protected] or call us at 602-282-0849. 


Collaboration in action! Props to Campus partner Central Arizona Shelter Services (CASS) who is co-hosting the event with HSC.
