Community Call to Action: Saving Lives Through Water Donations
KTVK 3TV joins Safeway in support of The Salvation Army to "Hydrate Arizona"
Every summer Arizona's most vulnerable go without water and necessary items to keep them hydrated and protected from extreme temperatures. As temperatures heat up, access to clean water and protection from the sun becomes an issue of life or death.
Help 3TV, The Salvation Army and Safeway save lives this summer. Help us Hydrate Arizona. On average Arizona sees 109 days of 100-plus degree 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. The program, in partnership with local police and fire organizations, provides water and other helpful items to Arizona's most vulnerable—our homeless and elderly.
Donating is easy. You can donate bottled water, or other needed items, like sunscreen or hats at, any Safeway store in the state. You can also attend our Summer Safety Fair for free food, fun and information, Thursday, May 23, at the Safeway located at 810 E. Glendale Avenue, Phoenix, Ariz. Don't forget to bring a case of bottled water!
