Code: Red

Helping others from Summer Heat



In anticipation of what could be its hottest summer ever recorded, the Code: Red Summer Heat Relief has begun. The program, which will run through August 31, and is dedicated to providing food, water, and other heat relief to the elderly and homeless population in the Valley.
Men, women, and children experiencing homelessness are at risk of dying from excessive heat, a fate that 114 individuals fell victim to in 2017 in Phoenix.

Here's how you can help:

Organize a water drive — challenge your co-workers, family, friends, or church to join you in providing life-saving water this summer to those who need it most. Ready to start your drive? Contact Catie Hammann: chammann@phoenixrescuemission.org or 602-346-3347 to get started.

Volunteer — there are plenty of opportunities at the Phoenix Rescue Mission to make a difference in the lives of those we serve. See the latest volunteer opportunities at phoenixrescuemission.org.

Donate — If you live in Arizona, you know costs rise in the summer. From air to energy, man-power and extra equipment, our summer time costs are high. Make your greatest impact by simply donating. Because of a generous donor, your GIFT WILL DOUBLE thanks to a matching grant.

Volunteer drivers will help the Hope Coach Outreach program to deliver needed items to the Valley’s homeless and elderly population. Drop-off sites that accept donations of heat relief items like hats, sunscreen and water are located throughout the city.
