With the temperatures rising, community organizations will help to provide water to those in need. For several years, Sarah Tokosh, a paraeducator at Indian Bend Elementary School, has spearheaded a Bottled Water Drive to give to a local charity.
“Water is an important necessity in Arizona. With summer temperatures expected above 110 degrees, water is needed for survival on the streets,” said Tokosh.
Staff and students at Indian Bend Elementary School have collected 32,338 bottles that were donated to Never Alone, Inc. Giovanni Contreras, a fifth-grade student, collected a whopping 1,240 bottles. The United Parent Council, Realty ONE, and EPIQ Lending donated 12,000 bottles and 100 umbrellas.
Principal Jan Stevens added, “In a year where not a lot of student events are happening, it is nice to see our students roll up their sleeves and get excited to get behind such a great cause. I am truly proud of the way our school came together to provide such a great service to our community. Go Thunderbirds!”
