THE COLOR

ONE SURE THING

The early summer-like heat has many people happy after a long winter. But for those living on the streets, it can be difficult to stay hydrated. 

Siloam Mission says they are in need of bottled water to help Winnipeg's citizens. Siloam's communications manager, Luke Thiessen, says that they're hoping Winnipeggers can help them out.

"Just this week we've obviously seen the hot weather, and it's really getting warm outside, but we also noticed we're down to our last 13 cases of bottled water. So we're putting out the call for bottled water."

Thiessen says that they will need a lot of water over the summer, especially if temperatures stay this warm.

Last summer when Siloam put out a similar call for help people showed an overwhelming response. Thiessen says he's confident the same will happen again this year. In fact, Siloam already knows that they're in store for a big donation.

"Our friends at World of Water have agreed to step up, and now at the beginning of summer give us several thousands of bottles of water. But, we still need more," Thiessen says.

You can drop off donations at Siloam's new donation centre at the corner of Stanley & Logan.
