Arizona Lottery Provides Gives Back Sponsorship to Support MAG’s Heat Relief Network (The Heat Relief Network is a community effort that brings together the Maricopa Regional Continuum of Care, cities and towns, nonprofit agencies, faith-based organizations, businesses and individuals to provide resources to those who are vulnerable.
Through a competitive process, five nonprofit agencies were selected to receive $10,000 each for water purchases: Salvation Army, Community Bridges Inc., City of Phoenix, City of Tolleson, and Phoenix Rescue Mission.
• In total, the $50,000 Arizona Lottery Gives Back Sponsorship will help purchase an estimated 15,000 cases of bottled water to prevent heat deaths among vulnerable populations. According to the Maricopa County Public Health Department, more than 300 people lost their lives due to the heat last year, continuing an alarming upward trend in the region.
• There have been 16 confirmed heat-related deaths this year, with 138 additional deaths under investigation.
• The Heat Relief Network provides relief by offering cooling centers, hydration stations, and bottled water to those suffering in the extreme temperatures. Heat relief locations can be found on MAG’s interactive mobile-friendly map, available online at the Heat Relief Network.
