Arizona is one of the hottest places on earth from May to September. Dehydration is very common during the summer, and access to fresh, clean water can be scarce.
Year after year, nearly 2,000 people visit Arizona emergency rooms because of heat-related illnesses, many involving dehydration. Some heat-related illnesses could even be fatal, and many are due to a lack of water.
In an effort to help Arizonans stay hydrated, 3TV, The Salvation Army and Safeway have joined forces again this year for the Hydrate Arizona Water Drive. On average Arizona sees 109 days of 100-plus temperatures. Imagine having no relief from those harsh conditions.
Donations to our Hydrate Arizona campaign go directly to The Salvation Army’s Heat and Hydration Project and other civil service programs. The program provides water for thousands of individuals across the state, including families, elderly, homeless, underprivileged children and fire & police services.
Donations of bottled water can be made at any Safeway store in the state.
