Along with other public health organizations throughout Illinois, Aunt Martha's is helping to raise public awareness of Keep Cool Illinois, a collaborative effort to share information about how to beat the heat of summer, how to stay safe during the season for outdoor recreation, and how to tap into resources that help you keep yourself and your homes cool.
As part of this collaborative effort, the state has established more than 120 facilities to serve as cooling centers. Cooling centers are open during normal business hours from 8:30a.m. - 5:00p.m. Monday through Friday.
For more information about cooling centers call the Illinois Department of Human Services hotline at (800) 843-6154.
You can also find a list of cooling centers near you at the Keep Cool Illinois website.
