Fighting high temperatures with Heat Relief

We offer cooling stations to help vulnerable neighbors amid soaring temperatures

The Salvation Army of North Texas is again opening cooling stations across our five-county region as high temperatures continue to rise. 

As temperatures rise, heat-related illness becomes a real threat in our community, especially for vulnerable communities such as seniors and those experiencing homelessness and poverty. 

To help, our partners Reliant and Westlake Ace Hardware will be providing bottled water and portable fans at cooling centers to combat high-heat exposure. Service locations across our five-county region will also be open to provide heat relief to the public.

Some locations will have outdoor cooling stations, while others are providing supplies such as boxed fans and bottled water as part of the food pantry service. Depending on the unique needs of each North Texas community, we're also providing relief by:

  • Checking in on elderly or other vulnerable individuals in affected communities

  • Utilizing emergency disaster mobile feeding units (canteens) to bring relief to vulnerable populations

  • Providing financial assistance for families experiencing lost wages who may be at risk of having their utilities shut off

Since March 2020, The Salvation Army has provided more than $2 million in financial assistance, including utilities. The need for support from our generous neighbors is at an all-time high. If you're able, consider making a donation to help us continue our relief efforts.
