For the third year in a row, Saliba’s partnered with the Phoenix Rescue Mission to sponsor the organization’s Code:Red Relief campaign to ensure the homeless population and at-risk individuals do not fall victim to Arizona’s scorching summer heat. The Phoenix Rescue Mission is an organization that provides resources and solutions to people in the Phoenix community struggling with homelessness, addiction, and trauma. During the summer months, the Phoenix Rescue Mission launches the Code:Red Relief initiative to prevent heat-related deaths among the homeless population.
“In addition to battling triple-digit temperatures, the number of homeless men and women in our community has continued to climb while the pandemic limits access to many resources and services,” said Ken Brissa, CEO, Phoenix Rescue Mission.
To help the organization’s efforts, Saliba’s Phoenix and Tucson locations participated in a drive to gather supplies for the Phoenix Rescue Mission. The pharmacy locations collected and donated 103 cases of water and a variety of hygiene products to the initiative, which were transported by Saliba’s delivery department alongside direct shipments from Costco.
The Phoenix Rescue Mission’s campaign to provide community support for those in need saves lives. Testimonials on the organization’s website (linked below) illustrate the organization’s efforts. Every person who passes through their doors leaves changed.
At Saliba’s, we appreciate the care, compassion and hope the Phoenix Rescue Mission provides to vulnerable members of our community.
