Phoenix-area cooling stations help locals beat the extreme heat

Sometimes helping people in need is really simple. Here’s a perfect example.

It gets dangerously hot during the summer months in the Phoenix area. So hot that people without a cool home or office to go to are at significant risk of exposure and dehydration.

That’s why our staff in the aptly-named Valley of the Sun work with Safeway stores and Arizona Family’s 3TV to collect bottles of water to distribute throughout the season at our local cooling stations.

The Salvation Army opens cooling stations from 8:00AM to 2:00PM on days declared “heat emergencies” by the National Weather Service.

If you’re out and about on one of those days and need to cool off, stop by one of the locations noted on the map above.

Hint – Bookmark the map on your phone so if you see someone in need of a shady place to sit and a cool bottle of water this summer you can show them where to go.

Thank you to all the donors and partners who make it possible to beat the heat in Phoenix. You really are life-savers!

If you’d like to know more or donate supplies, please call (602) 267-4100 or click here for our “contact us” via email form.
