So, it’s getting HOT outside, right? Have you ever taken a minute to think about how many people in Arizona are in need of basics like drinking water during the hot summer months? Well, thankfully, Carey Peña from channel 3TV and azfamily.com have introduced a very cool social media campaign designed to help many of the homeless and elderly in our community.
Help us raise 20,000 bottles of water!
Social media is a great way to help spread a message and 3TV is doing their part to help a lot of people get through the hot summer months in Phoenix. All YOU have to do is go to www.azfamily.com/water and “Like” the page and a bottle of water will be donated for people in need this summer! For each “LIKE” a bottle of water will be donated to the Salvation Army!
During the summer months, when the National Weather Service declares an extreme heat warning, members from The Salvation Army’s Extreme Heat and Hydration Project respond by setting up hydration stations at 12 locations throughout the valley. In addition to the free standing hydration stations, Phoenix police cruisers are equipped with ice chests and bottled water to provide heat relief during their normal circulation of Phoenix. 3TV’s bottled water drive provides all the water for these efforts.
Additionally, after you ‘Like’ 3TV, you can also ‘Like’ Air Conditioning by Jay, and for each ‘Like’ on their Facebook page, Air Conditioning by Jay will donate another bottle of water. That’s 2 bottles of water for needy people in our community!
After the Facebook campaign, 3TV’s Annual Bottled Water Drive will be held June 16, 2011 from 6 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. at The Salvation Army located at 2707 E. Van Buren in Phoenix. That day valley residents are encouraged to drop off bottled water to help the cause.
Huge thanks to these sponsors!
