Heat wave

Weather forecasters are calling for record heat over the next few days in North Carolina. We encourage you to use this as an opportunity to reach out to your community. Following are some ideas:

-Contact your neighbors to see how they are handlingthe heat.
-Provide small A/C window units or fans for those without a place to cool off.  (If providing an A/C unit, consider providing some financial help to cover the higher electrical bill.)
-Open your church as a cooling center for those in the neighborhood.
-Some may need additional ice to help them stay cool.
-Offer transportation to a mall or other public place with Air Conditioning
-Contact city and/or county government for programs that may be available to assist those with heat related needs.

These are just some ways you can help those in you community to prevent heat stroke and heat exhaustion.  In addition, you will be able to share God's love with those in need.
