Summer Action Hero with St. Vincent de Paul

Aug 16, 2019

Team U-Haul participated in the Summer Action Hero Campaign to help St. Vincent de Paul provide relief to Arizonans in need during the hot summer months.

Who is a Summer Action Hero?

Many people here in the Valley, from those who are homeless to hardworking families, struggle during the hot summer months. Children are out of school and without access to meal programs. In addition to extra child-care costs, parents are faced with high utility bills.

St. Vincent de Paul works tirelessly to achieve its mission of helping those in need. A longtime charity partner of U-Haul, SVdP is dedicated to feeding, clothing, housing and healing individuals and families in the community who have nowhere else to turn.

This summer, SVdP is collecting water and other items of high need. Everything donated is distributed to the homeless community throughout the Valley and other parts of Arizona.

Team Members Make an Impact

U-Haul is proud to step up again and assist in several ways. The Company presented St. Vincent de Paul a check for $4,000 to purchase and distribute water.

U-Haul Team Members also took part in a phone drive at the ABC 15 news station. Volunteers eagerly answered calls as gracious Arizonans called in to donate money for water.

In addition, U-Haul hosted a water drive of its own. Team Members at the U-Haul corporate headquarters in Phoenix collected nearly 5,000 bottles of water. The U-Haul Technical Center in Tempe collected about 2,000 bottles of water.
