PHOENIX - The Salvation Army says it will open hydration stations throughout the Valley to provide heat relief services this weekend, but could use your help stocking up.
From 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, 10 stations will provide chilled bottled water and safety information to anyone at risk of distress due to heat, said spokeswoman Melissa Axman with the Salvation Army.
The hydration stations are seeing more people this summer than in previous years, said John Landrum with the homeless outreach program Project H.O.P.E.
Locations have been handing out double the amount of water, he said.
Axman said stations are running low on sunblock, tote bags and T-shirts.
Anyone interested in donating bottled water, sunblock, tote bags, and light T-shirts can make a delivery at 2707 E. Van Buren Street, or call 602-267-4170 for more information.
