Salvation Army opens 13 cooling stations across North Texas

To help North Texans battle the dangerous summer heat, The Salvation Army has opened up its cooling stations.

There are 13 cooling stations across the area that are meant to help the homeless, people without air conditioning and those who work outside.

"To see them and their faces are all sweaty their shirts are sticking to their backs and to see them to grab a bottle of water and to see them leave out of here and to see their smile across their faces it warms our hearts here at Salvation Army,” said Rebecca Lex.

Cooling stations at the Salvation Army Homeless Shelter in Dallas and Fort Worth are open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to either 8 p.m. The 11 other locations are only open on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
