The Salvation Army Citadel Worship & Community Center will be open as a cooling center for the community when Temps are 95 or higher.
DES MOINES, Iowa. (August 2, 2022) – Temperatures are dangerously high this week and The Salvation Army wants to make sure the community knows our facility at 1216 E 25th, near the state fairgrounds, is opening its doors to anyone who needs to cool off. Cooling center hours will be from 9 AM to 12 PM and 1 PM to 3 PM and water will be available.
“Our doors are always open to the community, especially in time of need. Whenever the temperature is over 95 we will be ready to help with water and an opportunity to cool down,” said Lieutenant Tim Gantner, Corps Officer at The Salvation Army Citadel Worship and Community Center. “It’s so easy for the heat to get the best of people quickly when it’s this hot and it’s important they know where they can go.”
