ODESSA - The triple digit temperatures are hard on everyone, so the Odessa Salvation Army is stepping in to help you cool off.

They've set up a water cooling station in their lobby for anyone seeking relief from the heat.

You can grab some ice and water and take a break.

With the sweltering heat, they want to make sure everyone has a chance to get some shade.

"There's always someone out there who might be on the verge of heat stroke, heat exhaustion. Somebody who may not have access to those cool temperatures or cold water," Lt. Stephen Correira, with the Salvation Army, said. "We never turn anybody away. It doesn't matter how much water they want. We're here to provide that for them."

The cooling station is open until 5 p.m. each day but people are welcome to go to their shelter if they want to stay longer.
