A Valley nonprofit agency is asking for help in providing supplies to help the Valley's homeless cope with the recent Valley heat wave.
Southwest Behavioral Health Services needs the supplies for its Homeless Outreach program, a mobile program that delivers supplies to homeless people living on the streets, in alleys, riverbeds, parks and near deserted areas, according to an SBH news release.
SBH Homeless Outreach employees on scheduled days visit soup kitchens, pocket shelters and transport homeless to mental health and substance abuse screenings, according to the release.
Needed items include:
Hats or caps
Hygiene kits (including toothpaste and toothbrushes)
This SBH Homeless Outreach covers Maricopa County, from Wickenburg to Apache Junction.
Donations can be dropped off from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., at Southwest Behavioral Health, 3450 N. Third St. Phoenix (602-265-8338); or, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday at SBH's Homeless Outreach offices at Central Arizona's Day Resource Center, 1125 W. Jackson, Ste. No. 448, Phoenix, (602-393-9930 ext. 3444).
