Temperatures are rising and Stephen Center (stephencenter.org) is in urgent need of bottled water. Consider making donations now!

Water is always in demand at Stephen Center, but it is imperative to bulk the supply as the summer months approach. The high temperatures of summer pose a significant risk to anyone exposed, specifically people experiencing homelessness as they navigate through the process of finding permanent housing. Water is an essential item for the safety, well-being and success of clients at Stephen Center.

Donations can be brought to the Donation Center located on the south side of the 2723 Q St. building. The Donation Center is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 12-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Water can also be donated through their wish list accessible at www.stephencenter.org. Please contact the donation center at (402) 715-5478 for further information.
