4th Annual Water Drive

Our 4th Annual Water Drive was another huge success, thanks to the Landings staff and members that donated to our drive. In a single month, we were able to collect 11,280 bottles of water that will be donated to non-profits in the communities in which our branches are located. As we all know, water is vital in the Arizona summer, and ensuring the homeless are hydrated during the hot months is imperative, which is why we continue to do our water drive every year. 

The water that was collected at our Chandler and Gilbert branches were donated to AZCEND. AZCEND was established in 1966 and has programs that include Community Action, Family Resource Center, Chandler, and Gilbert Senior Centers, and an Interfaith Homeless Emergency Lodging Program as well as a Food Bank. The water collected at the Tempe Branch will be taken to the Tempe Community Action Agency (TCAA). TCAA provides education, stability, and advocacy for low-income families, children, seniors, and the homeless. They help to secure food and shelter to those in need and operate a food pantry and interfaith homeless emergency lodging program among other programs.
