In addition, Tempe kicked off a bottled water drive and is offering pool passes as a small token of thanks.
The city's mobile cooling center, Jenny's Trailer, is a solarized 20-foot travel trailer. The trailer is a collaboration among the city, humanitarian and funder Jenny Norton and Arizona State University's Engineering Projects in Community Service students, who converted the trailer into a mobile cooling center. Staffed by the city’s Homeless Outreach Prevention Effort specialists, the trailer provides a place to cool off, hydrate, and connect to shelter and social services.
Resources, safety tips and information about donating water and more can all be found at tempe.gov/HeatRelief.
