Additional cooling stations open through Wednesday
NOTE: The additional cooling stations will also be open June 21 because of extreme heat. The Salvation Army really needs bottled water to distribute. It will be given to people who come to the cooling stations and will also be taken to the homeless who are unable to reach a station.
Donations of bottled water are being accepted at their location on West Owens near Main Street or at their administrative offices, 2900 Palomino Lane. Donors may also call 702-870-4430 to make a cash donation.
