from their website
Interfaith Sanctuary works to shield some of the Treasure Valley’s most vulnerable residents from the sweltering temperatures. The Boise shelter’s “Beat the Heat” program, provides a respite from the hot weather for area homeless men, women and children.

The shelter opens its doors at 6 p.m. each night when the heat is at its peak, granting an air-conditioned escape for those who have few opportunities to cool off at the end of the day.

The Beat the Heat campaign also is an opportunity to collect much-needed supplies and donations. The Interfaith Sanctuary is asking for donations of bottled water, small bottles of sunscreen and aloe vera, lip balm, sun visors and baseball caps in various sizes for both children and adults.
