Homeless and unsheltered people benefited from the generosity of residents who donated to the Mesa Hydration Donation campaign, which ended August 30.

The City of Mesa’s Office of Human Services facilitated the delivery of 21,000 bottles of water, Valley of the Sun United Way donated 9,400 bottles and approximately 8,000 bottles were donated to United Food Bank to help the homeless and unsheltered cope with the extreme heat. In addition, Word of Grace Church collected more than a thousand cases of water during the campaign and handed out 50 cases a week. They have extra cases of water that are available to social service agencies. The Mesa Fire Department and Paz de Cristo also collected numerous donations of water and Gatorade.

“Mesa is a community filled with folks that care and are willing to come together for a common cause,” City of Mesa Human Services Specialist Lisa Wilson said.

United Food Bank delivered water to numerous agencies in the Valley including Word of Grace Church, A New Leaf-East Valley Men’s Center, Sprinzl Murphy food pantry, Paz de Cristo, Central Arizona Shelter Services (CASS), The Genesis Project, Basic Mission, Community Bridges, Tempe Community Action Agency, Tempe Salvation Army and Gilbert and Chandler CAP agencies.

The Mesa Hydration Donation campaign, which began June 18, included two locations that offered the homeless a cool place to stay during the hottest part of the day. Word of Grace Church, located at 655 E. University, assisted approximately 250 people a week, including at least 40 women. Paz de Cristo, located at 424 W. Broadway Road, averaged 200 people daily.

Tempe partners with residents to eliminate alley weeds by quotes

Tempe partners with residents to eliminate alley weeds



TEMPE, Ariz. – Monsoon rains have created an overgrowth of weeds in
Tempe’s alleys unseen in years, according to the Public Works
department. In response, the department began spraying weeds in the
alleys more than three weeks ago.


“All alleys from the north city limit to US 60 are complete,” said John
Osgood, deputy public works manager. “All alleys south of US 60 are
being sprayed this week and next week.”


Tempe has more than 165 miles of unpaved alleys and, by city code,
property owners are charged with taking care of the alley space directly
behind their homes. As a result, the city is requesting help from
residents in removing the dead weeds and keeping alleys as well
maintained as possible.


“Ideally they will bag up what they can and place them in the 300-gallon
container in the alley,” Osgood said. “Or they can bundle them up and
place them in a pile adjacent to their alley wall.”


For more information, call Street Maintenance in the Public Works
Department at 480-350-8229.
