DonCARES & S.M.O.O.T.H Inc. Temple Chapter host 2019's second hydration walk for the homeles


On Saturday, August 10, 2019, from noon until 2 PM, DonCARES of Philadelphia, Inc. and Strong Men Overcoming Obstacles Through Hard Work (S.M.O.O.T.H) Temple Section collaborated on the second hydration walk for the summer of 2019.

The idea to serve started in 2017 when DonCARES Founder and Executive Director saw individuals in need. "It was a hot summer day and I was thirsty. I went into a WaWa and bought a water bottle. As I walked out, I saw a homeless man lying on the sidewalk without a shirt. At that moment, I knew that I was in a privileged position and decided to give my bottle of water to the man on the street. I then went back to Wawa and bought one for myself." Forrest reminisces on the exact moment he decided that there should be a larger effort to serve, that's when we started a go-fund-me to raise money for waters and coolers.

Since 2017, DonCARES has held six hydration walks. Since July 2019, DonCARES has collaborated with Strong Men Overcoming Obstacles Through Hard work and given nearly 400 bottles of water to Philadelphia's less fortunate.

This year, DonCARES and S.M.O.O.T.H were joined by members of Temple's Black Student Union, Groove Phi Groove, Social Fellowship, Inc. In attendance were also members of DonCARES and S.M.O.O.T.H who are also members of the National Society of Black Engineers, and Alliance for Minority Participation.
