The Arizona Coyotes announced Monday they will be hosting a bottled water drive at Gila River Arena on July 27 from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m.

The cases of water will go to Hope for Hunger Phoenix Rescue Mission.

“We have been experiencing some incredibly high temperatures in the Valley the past month and many people are in desperate need for water to survive the heat,” Coyotes president and CEO Xavier Gutierrez said in a press release. “We are proud to partner with Pepsi and Glendale Fire Fighters Charities on this important water drive to provide essential hydration to those in need.”

Pepsi will begin the drive with a donation of 500 cases of bottled water.

The drive will take place on the Westgate Plaza in front of Gila River Arena in Glendale. Fans can drive up on Coyotes Boulevard and remain in their cars. Fans are asked to wear a mask while driving through. Traffic will enter on the west side and exit on the east side.

Everyone who donates a case of water at the drive on July 27 will get a Coyotes-branded mask and car magnet.

If fans can’t visit the Westgate location, donations will be accepted at any Glendale fire station from July 27 to Aug. 2. You can also donate online here.
