KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The Salvation Army is working overtime to make sure Kansas City residents stay safe during the extreme heat.
More than 1,000 people have visited Salvation Army cooling centers. Not only does the Salvation Army hand out bottled water, but they also hand out meals.
“We have space for them to reside,” Capt. Charles Williams said Tuesday at the Salvation Army location at Ninth and Bellefontaine. “We have water there and snacks.”
Williams said they also hand out fans, but you must provide a current ID and electric bill to get a fan.
