‘Water for Living’ Tops 10,000 Bottles

The fourth annual Water for Living drive has collected more than 10,000 bottles of water to help those in need in our community.

The drive, spearheaded this year by the United Way of Pinal County, is held each summer at several locations throughout the city with donations being distributed to area agencies.

The drive has drawn more than 330 cases of donations, allowing us to serve over 5,000 individuals. The Friends of Apache Junction contributed $250 toward water purchases and secured electrolyte product contributions from GU Energy Labs. Republic Services generously donated 60 cases to help keep residents hydrated as well.

The water drive also partnered with the Pinal County Sheriff’s office, and provided them with 20 cases of water to ensure their squad cars are fully stocked. The drive continues through the month of August.
