Sherman Salvation Army Provides Cooling Station

Posted: Updated:

SHERMAN, TX--Any place cool is the place to be right now. The Salvation Army in Sherman is helping with that.

They're providing a cooling station for the homeless or for residents who don't have working air conditioning. 

As long as the heat advisory is in effect in Texoma, the building and emergency shelter will remain open.

"Listen, it's hot," said Don New, Salvation Army Captain. "As soon as I get out of my car I try to find somewhere cool to go, and unfortunately in this county, we may not see it, we may not hear of it, but there are individuals who don't have a place to get to and go to and get out of the heat, so that's why we're making ourselves available--opening up our building up to individuals."

The cooling station is open Monday through Friday from 10:00 AM  until 5:00 PM.
