Hydrating the Homeless

posted by Free Press Houston @ 1:10 PM

Beginning Saturday July 4th, 2009, the My Fellow Man Alliance homeless advocacy agency will partner with Fast Track Airport Parking in an effort to provide much needed relief from the heat to the Houston homeless community.

The plan is to provide aid during the hottest times and months of the summer.

This outreach endeavor entitled “Hydrating the Homeless” will occur between the hours of 12pm -4pm every Saturday (in the months of July and August 09’). Cold bottles of water, as well as sun visors will be distributed to the homeless in downtown Houston.

With the City’s temperatures swiftly moving into the triple digits, it is becoming dangerous to be exposed to the sun for long periods of time. However, for men, women and children without permanent housing, it will become increasingly difficult to avoid it.

Although the very complicated problems of the homeless community will not be solved by a bottle of water and a visor, My Fellow Man Alliance and Fast Track Airport Parking is attempting to reach-out to provide just a little relief, while keeping the homeless cooler.

Both organizations are sending out a challenge to the Houston community to get involved.
