Operation Hydration


The 10th Annual Operation Hydration Bottled Water Drive: 98KUPD’s summer-long partnership/collection drive with The Phoenix Rescue Mission to collect bottled water for valley-wide relief agencies. Each Thursday morning throughout the summer join KUPD at locations throughout the valley as we collect bottled water from listeners & local businesses in support of the campaign.      


Operation Hydration collected more than 150,000 bottles of water in the summers of 2012 & 2013 and has collected over 1,000,000 bottles since the inception of the drive in 2005.


The Phoenix Rescue Mission thanks all donors for helping keep the homeless and others in need hydrated this Summer. The Phoenix Rescue Mission is proud to have the support of businesses who collect bottled water from the community and deliver it to us for the PHXRM’s ‘Code Red Summer Heat Relief’ program..


Valley citizens can do their part before the end of the summer by either stopping by KUPD collection partners to drop any size donation off, bringing donations directly to the 98 KUPD studios or by calling the PHOENIX RESCUE MISSION directly at (602) 233-3000 or via their website at http://phoenixrescuemission.org/contact-us/ to arrange for a large donation pick up.
