Southwest Behavioral Health Service's Homeless Outreach, a nonprofit program to help homeless individuals with mental illness, is requesting donations of hot weather supplies.

This mobile program delivers supplies to homeless living on the streets, in alleyways, riverbeds, parks and near deserted areas. On scheduled days, employees of SBH Homeless Outreach visit soup kitchens, pocket shelters and transport homeless to mental health and substance abuse screenings. This program covers Maricopa County from Wickenburg to Apache Junction. With homeless populations reaching record levels, the need for donations is greater than ever. Items that SBH's Homeless Outreach is requesting include:

• Water

• Sunscreen

• Hats or caps

• Lip balm

• Hygiene kits (including toothpaste, toothbrushes)

• Lightweight T-shirts

• Shoes

• Socks

• Underwear

• Monetary donations to Southwest Behavioral Health Services

Donations can be dropped off at Southwest Behavioral Health, 3450 N. Third St. in Phoenix from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call (602) 265-8338 for more information. Or at SBH's Homeless Outreach offices at Central Arizona’s Day Resource Center, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, 1125 W. Jackson St., Suite 448, Phoenix, (602) 393-9930 ext. 3444. For large donations (from community drives, organizations or businesses), pick-ups can be arranged. All donations are greatly appreciated.
