  • All seven St. Vincent de Paul thrift stores in the Valley:

ABC15 will be broadcasting live from Bashas’ at 75th Avenue and Thunderbird in Peoria, and Higley and Brown roads in Mesa, throughout the day on July 3, encouraging people to donate.

“Water is crucial for survival during our hot summer months,” said Edward “Trey” Basha, President and CEO of Bashas’ Family of Stores. “We are proud to support St. Vincent de Paul’s valuable hydration relief efforts as they ensure some of our community's most vulnerable citizens have the lifesaving water they need.”

“Summer can be such a tough time for so many,” said SVdP Executive Director Steve Zabilski. “We often hear from people asking how they can help. We’re especially hoping that people who have never given will be inspired to step up and donate. I can assure you, you’ll feel better for doing it. You’ll be a hero to someone in need.”

“With Arizona’s hot summer temperatures, the gift of water can truly be the difference between life and death,” said ABC15 News Director Mark Casey. “It is our privilege to assist St. Vincent de Paul with their mission, to help our neighbors in need.”
