While the summer winds down in Arizona, the food pantries around the valley have depleted their stockpiles of bottled water and seek to replenish their inventories. Brown Management, a longtime customer of LetterStream, participated in the Code Red water drive this year and invited us to join along.
Code Red is the name given to the annual water drive that the Phoenix Rescue Mission promotes in order to replenish their water supply. The mission, operating in the Phoenix area, is committed to assisting families and individuals with their physical needs with a special focus on the homeless population and frail seniors. Their drive collects water for distribution throughout the valley to prevent heat related deaths. According to their website (www.phoenixrescuemission.com/codered) over 100 people die each year in Arizona as a result of excessive heat.
A special thanks goes out to Brown Management for inviting us to participate in this important local event.
The LetterStream team, as they often do, rallied around the task and filled two pickups full of bottled water. When all tallied up, nearly 2,000 bottles were donated by the team. We love that the LetterStream team can come together to complete all sorts of projects, not just those related to printing and mailing.
