Our Goal is to make cooling centers available to anyone who needs them everday this month.
Each year many people in our community suffer heat related illness and even death due to unfortunate inability to escape the dangerous temperatures though out the summer. In an attempt to assist members of our community during the grueling summer days, the City of Marshall along with several local churches have opened cooling centers for the month of August. By sharing the task at hand, we hope to be able to provide more relief from the heat. The following schedule had been developed for the cooling centers; they will be open from noon until evening when the heat subsides.
If you know of a person or a family that could be in need of this type of assistance, urge them come and make use of the cooling centers, we want to help as many people as we can.
Anybody needing a ride to or from a cooling center may call my office (903-934-7920).
As you can see, not all of the days have been committed to yet and we are still seeking more churches or organizations that want to assist or provide a cooling center. If you would like to take part in saving lives in our community, contact me for more information.
The above schedule is not set in stone and could change during the month with the addition of other facilities. Please check our website for updates.
