BULLHEAD CITY–Summer is right around the corner and with temperatures now getting closer to high triple digits, one local business is helping keep the homeless community cool with their Code:RED water drive.
As part of their third annual “Lerner and Rowe Gives Back” program, Robyn Brandt, case manager for the local law office, said their Bullhead City office is now collecting cases of water from residents and businesses around the community.
Donations can be dropped off Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Lerner & Rowe office, 1850 Highway 95.
“We collect them at our office and than distribute them to River Cities Resource Center so they can make sure the homeless community are cared for during the heat.” Brandt said. “We want to make sure they keep hydrated and cooled during our summer months.”
Last year, Brandt said they collected 520 cases of water from various donors around the community. This year they are hoping to exceed that number with the help of local residents and businesses.
“Several donations were made by employees from the Bullhead City Walmart. Target made a donation on behalf of their local store,” said Brandt. “But, a lot of the water donations came from local individuals.”
For those looking to cool off from the heat, RiverCities Resources will also have a cooling station this summer. They are located at 2135 Highway 95 Ste. 145 in Bullhead City.
