PHOENIX – The Arizona Super Bowl LVII Host Committee kicked off a monthlong water drive Monday to help organizations that serve the Valley’s homeless population.

The campaign to benefit St. Vincent de Paul and the Human Services Campus runs through Sept. 15.

Contributors can drop off bottled water at collection sites across Phoenix or make monetary donations online.

Monetary donations will be used to purchase water at wholesale prices, with each dollar translating to seven bottles.

The collection sites are also accepting reusable water bottles to reduce the use of single-use plastics.

Multiple Phoenix spots are on the list of drop-off locations, including the Phoenix Convention Center, Herberger Theater Center and the Fry’s Food and Drug in downtown.

The full list can be found at the host committee’s website.

Local businesses can also sign up online to host a donation bin.

Last month, the Super Bowl committee started recruiting thousands of volunteers to serve as ambassadors in the lead-up to the February 2023 game at Glendale’s State Farm Stadium.

We want to hear from you.
