The Salvation Army runs a mobile drinking station throughout the valley

PHOENIX – Because of the dangerous heat, the Salvation Army drives through the valley with its mobile drinking system for at least Friday six hours a day.

The crew gives cold water and other resources to the homeless.

ABC15 drove with them as they pit stops across Phoenix on Sunday.

“There isn’t much shade in Phoenix. It’s dangerous in the summer when people are around the clock, ”said Brent Babb of the Salvation Army. “I like the work. It’s worth it.”

Temps hit 115+ this week in #PHX. For this reason, the Salvation Army will drive through the valley from now until at least Friday -6 hours a day, distributing cold water and other resources to the homeless. Her story will air at 5 p.m. tonight on # ABC15

Babb has been helping relieve heat on triple-digit days for almost 15 years. He says they can distribute 100 bottles of water every day to people waiting at bus stops or staying in parks.

“You worry about some of the people who are out here all the time,” he said. “Especially when the temperature doesn’t get low enough at night to regulate your body temperature.”

The Salvation Army has also set up heat relief stations at locations throughout the valley. To learn more, click here.
