On such days, The Salvation Army will be at select park providing water and heat relief items for the homeless:
- Santa Rita Park (22nd St./4th Ave)
So far this summer, Operation Chill Out has distributed 22078 bottles of water along with much needed summer heat relief items.
There is a crucial need for donations of unopened bottled water, sunscreen, sun glasses, lip balm, hats, umbrellas, and light-colored clothing.
"As we are nearing the end of Operation Chill Out, with only two weeks left, it is wonderful to see what a community can do together when it has one common goal. We are so grateful for our valued community partners and people who have made donations. Together, we have distributed 22,078 bottled waters to our neighbors in need, " said Captain Ellen Oh, The Salvation Army Tucson Area Coordinator. "Your generous donations make a difference."
