Senior Cooling Centers
When temperatures reach the mid 90’s for more than three days, the Hollywood Senior Center will once again be open as a Senior Cooling Center. This year the Hollywood Senior Center will run two Cooling Center locations. The first is at our Hollywood Location. The second will be at the United Methodist Pioneer Church- 7528 N. Charleston Ave.
Both sites will be open extended hours until 8pm to provide relief from the extreme heat. We’ll have plenty of water, snacks and will be showing nightly movies on those days. Limited transportation assistance will be available.
