House of Hope offers cooling station
It's another HOT summer in Florence and the homeless need a place to cool off. Can you help?
In the past couple of weeks, the police and others in the community, have witnessed homeless men, women and children passing out from the heat. The House of Hope realized that they needed to open a "cooling station" for their guests and anyone in the community, to be able to come in from the heat. So they opened one!
Now they need volunteers to man the station.
Volunteers can work in 2 hour (or longer) shifts from 10-4 Monday through Saturdays, in July and August. Volunteer duties are simple! Just welcome the guests, offer water and point out the bathrooms!
The House of Hope ‘cooling station’ is located at 535 South Church Street in Florence.
