Help keep our most vulnerable citizens cool this summer! Due to COVID19 restrictions, the locations in our community that have traditionally been used for cooling centers during the summer are either not open or have a greatly reduced the number of people they are able to be serve due to social distancing requirements. Our friends and neighbors are suffering in the heat. Several agencies are coming together with funding from the United Way to open the Rockford Cooling Center at SecondFirst Church. The Cooling Center is open daily from 10am-4pm.
This program is fully staffed, and all procedures have been approved by the Winnebago Country Health Department. They would love your help with hospitality!
They are looking for volunteers to:
• Welcome community members at the front desk
• Distribute coffee, water or snacks
The Cooling Center is located inside the church gymnasium. Masks are required and will be provided if needed.
Please help us spread the word about the availability of this resource, and the need for volunteers. Sign up on the "tickets" link on this page or at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040444acad2ba0fe3-rockford
