#MesaHydrates

The 14th Annual Mesa Hydration Donation Campaign, from June 1 through September 25, provides supplies of water to people in need. The City of Mesa works with nonprofit agencies and businesses to collect the bottles of water which are distributed through United Food Bank to numerous agencies in the valley, including A New Leaf-East Valley Men’s Center, Paz de Cristo and Mesa United Way.

The campaign is a life saver for the less fortunate during the hot summer months and the need is even greater this year due to the economic challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic.  Since the campaign began in 2007, more than 4.2 million bottles of water have been donated. $5 or less buys a case of water.

Know Your H2O Hydration Stations

Water Resources and Councilmember Jen Duff have partnered on a Hydration Station campaign to provide a clean, sustainable heat relief solution in downtown Mesa. The Hydration Stations are water bottle refill stations available year-round in public areas easily accessible to anyone who needs a drink of water. Hydration Stations reduce plastic bottle waste by enabling users to refill reusable bottles as many times as they like.
