Heat Relief for Families in Need

With the temperature expected to hover near record-breaking territory, Imagine Children’s Museum is opening its doors to families in need. On Thursday, July 30, between the hours of 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., families with young children who are facing financial needs are encouraged to enjoy the Museum’s air conditioned space at no charge.

“People often talk about the impact of heat on the elderly,” said Nancy Johnson, Executive Director of Imagine Children’s Museum, “but it is critical to remember that children also are at a particularly high risk. They are much more susceptible to risk from heat illness and dehydration than healthy adults.”

Imagine Children's Museum is located at 1502 Wall Street in Everett.

And once you know just how hot it is, you might want to go to one of the cooling centers which are open in north Snohomish County.
