 Homeless Need Help Staying Cool in the Summer

Homeless Hotline  (602) 263-8845

When the temperatures soar and the hot summer days are upon us, many homeless people who live on the streets do not have their basic needs met.

The city of Phoenix is asking people to donate only the following items – unopened water bottles, sunscreen, new underwear, white socks, white T-shirts and prepackaged snack items such as individually wrapped cookies and crackers – that will be distributed to the homeless. Cash or check donations to supplement the donated items also are welcomed. The program runs until Aug. 31.

Tax-deductible donations may be delivered to the city’s four Family Services Centers: Travis L. Williams, 4732 S. Central Ave., 602-534-4732; John F. Long, 3454 N. 51st Ave., 602-262-6510; Central Phoenix, 1250 S. Seventh Ave., 602-534-1250; and Sunnyslope, 914 W. Hatcher Road, 602-495-5229. The centers are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday.

The donated items are distributed by local homeless outreach teams from Tumbleweed Center for Youth Development, HomeBase Youth Services, The Salvation Army Project HOPE, Health Care for the Homeless, Terros and Southwest Behavioral Health Service PATH Outreach.
