With the heat jumping into the triple digits I can't help but wonder how I can help those in our community who are less fortunate. I'm glad I found this program through the Salvation Army called Operation Chill Out, here are the details!
Operation Chill Out
When temperatures reach the triple digits in Tucson, our community's homeless population is put in an even more dire situation, with little to no means to escape the sweltering heat.
Our Hospitality House staff and volunteers are putting their compassion into action with Operation Chill out, going to local parks to provide relief with water, hats, lip balm, sunscreen, umbrellas, and light colored t-shirts.
The Salvation Army Tucson Hospitality House and Corps Community Centers also open their doors during regular operating hours to provide indoor cooling and hydration:
