Each year during May through September Vista del Camino serves as a water hydration station.
The station’s purpose is to protect the vulnerable, especially the homeless, during summer heat by providing sites where they can get free bottled water, sunscreen wipes, lip balm and hats.
Scottsdale Healthcare partners with the city to provide the supplies, plus information on the dangers of extreme heat. The public can donate water or other items, including light-colored T-shirts, sunblock, socks and underwear, hats and pre-packaged snack items.
The Hydration Station is part of a regional "Heat Relief Network" program .
