TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Monday, June 19, begins a week of several First Alert Action Days. While many can beat the heat inside, not everyone has that luxury.

The Salvation Army volunteers are helping the homeless stay cool, but they are in desperate need of donations.

Corey Leith, public relation director for the Salvation Army, said they are passing out 14 cases of water a day. That amount could increase as temperatures continue to rise.

Not only are they giving out water, the Salvation Army gives out hats, sunscreen, lip balm, sunglasses and umbrellas.

Right now, they are passing out these donations at Santa Rita and De Anza Parks but they need more volunteers so they can expand and get help to as many people as possible.

Donations can be d ropped off at The Salvation Army Hospitality House at 1002 N. Main Avenue or any Naughton's Plumbing location. Monetary donations can be made by calling (520) 622-5411.

If you want to volunteer to pass out supplies call (520) 795-9671.
