Plumbing Masters Hands Out Water Bottles To Phoenix Homeless

Plumbing Masters Water Giveaway

Plumbing Masters employees Franklin Crespo of Tempe (middle) and Richard Kott of Gilbert (right) spent the morning of July 14 handing out hundreds of cold water bottles to the homeless in Downtown Phoenix.

Scorching hot temperatures continue in the Valley this week, and residents are being urged to keep hydrated and stay indoors as much as possible. While most of us can run from our air conditioned cars to our homes or offices to escape the sizzling heat, that’s just not an option for the thousands of people dealing with homelessness in Maricopa County.

The homeless are one of the most at-risk populations for heat-related illnesses and even death. According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, even people who stay indoors should drink 2 liters of water per day. People who spend time outdoors should be drinking 1 to 2 liters per hour.

Plumbing Masters wants to help bring awareness to the homeless who are living outside during the extreme hot summer months, and on July 14, a team filled up one of their big yellow trucks with hundreds of water bottles to give away to anyone who needed it.

“Our plumbers log so many hours driving from one end of the Valley to the other, and we’ve all seen firsthand just how many people are living on the streets and in need of immediate help here in our area,” says Plumbing Masters owner Brian McQuistion. “We know 500 water bottles will go quickly, but hopefully it helps keep people safe this week and our efforts raise awareness as we head into the hottest months of the year.”
