When the temperatures start to rise, the homeless population in Phoenix becomes particularly vulnerable to heat-related illness or death. This is especially impactful for them, since they don’t often have access to a cool space to rest or readily-available water to drink.
In 2009, Chamberlain student Claire French learned of the challenges faced by the homeless of Phoenix, Arizona during her psych clinical rotation. Her patient was a homeless man, and described how difficult it was to sleep through the hot summer months.
He told French that the pavement never cooled down, and would burn you even in the middle of the night. French also recognized that the intense heat could have an effect on the man’s medications.
Motivated by her caring nature, French rallied her fellow classmates, as well as the faculty and staff at our Phoenix campus, to answer the dire need for donations of water to local shelters and food banks during Arizona’s scorching summers.
Together, their efforts raised enough money to purchase and distribute 2,200 bottles of water to a local homeless shelter.
The event was so successful, that it has now become an annual occurrence.
Through the local chapter of the National Student Nurses Association (NSNA) and Student Government Association (SNA), they continue their efforts each and every year to bring water to those in need at the height of summer.
