Project Water Helps the Homeless

The 14th annual Project Water takes place Tuesday, July 9 with hundreds of volunteers again helping distribute bottles of water to the homeless in Toronto through more than 170 frontline relief organizations.

Founded by Jody Steinhauer, president of The Bargains Group, at 890 Caledonia Rd., Project Water began 14 years ago to address the issue of the homeless dying from dehydration during the summer months.

Volunteers have committed hundreds of hours since the project’s inception to secure more than 1.5 million water bottles, warehouse the product, help load the water bottles and distribute them to relief organizations and homeless shelters in the city.

This year, volunteer opportunities are now limited to sponsors of the project. If your group is interested in sponsoring the project and bringing a team out, contact Steinhauer at 416-785-5865.
