Founded by Jody Steinhauer, Project Water–an Engage and Change initiative–was born in response to the inexcusable fact that more homeless people die from dehydration in the summer than from exposure in the winter.
During this one day event, volunteers and sponsors gather together to distribute cases of water—by hand—to over 170 front-line relief organizations. These agencies have the expertise to reach out to the homeless with bottled water during extreme heat alerts. Project Water volunteers also pack and distribute Summer Survival Kits containing essential items to help those in need cope with the extreme heat.
Since its inception, the project has placed in excess of 2.5 million bottles of water into the hands of the homeless in Toronto and the surrounding areas homeless.
