PRESS CONFERENCE – June 23, 2021
PROJECT WATER 2021 – We are thrilled to announce that, even though we aren’t able to gather for an actual event again this year, we have an adapted solution to get water to our most vulnerable citizens during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.
Founded in 1999 by Jody Steinhauer, Project Water was conceived in response to the inexcusable fact that more homeless people die from dehydration in the summer than from exposure in the winter.
Safe, clean drinking water is not a luxury, but the human body’s most fundamental need. Unfortunately, it’s a basic need that many homeless individuals in the Greater Toronto area too often go without. Especially during these hot summer months, a bottle of water can save a life.
Thanks to generous people just like you, Project Water has been working to bring clean drinking water and other basic survival necessities to homeless people in Toronto since 1999. Together, we’ve distributed over 4 million water bottles to those in desperate need, and that number continues to climb!
Your gift of just $50 will help provide clean drinking water and essential PPE supplies (face masks and hand sanitizer) to someone whose life depends on it. No amount is too big or too small to help save lives this summer!
Please give generously. Every donation makes an impact.
