TIFTON, GA (WALB) -

A Tifton woman is making sure firefighters stay hydrated this Summer.

Nicole Taylor kicked off her fifth annual Water and Gatorade Drive this week.

Businesses, churches, and individuals are donating cases of drinks for City, County, and volunteer firefighters.

Taylor says it wouldn't be successful without firefighters spreading the word.

"They are my backbone through this whole thing,” said Nicole Taylor, organizer. “If it wasn't for them I couldn't pull it out and pull it through each year to continue to do it."

"We couldn't do it without her,” said Jacob Carter, Firefighter. “Of course she brings in the water and it really helps everybody out a lot."

They collected more than 200 cases of water and Gatorade last year.

The drive will continue through July 31st.

Here are the list of drop off locations.

- Main Station (Forest Ave)

- South Station (Union Road)

- North Station (Tift Ave)

- Any volunteer station on their meeting nights
