On those days, The Salvation Army will be at De Anza Park at Speedway Boulevard and North Stone Avenue, as well as Santa Rita Park at 22nd Street and Fourth Avenue to hand out bottled water, sunscreen, hats, and umbrellas.
 
Would you like to help those who can't escape the heat? Donations are always welcome.
