EDMONTON – With temperatures hitting a blazing 30c , the hot sun may be welcomed by sun bathers and children alike.

But for the homeless people there is no respite from its tortuous heat.

Sunstoke is a cruel reality for those who cannot find shade. Many end up in city emergency wards.

The men – called Christophers by the Marian Centre – are in need of bottled water, baseball hats, shorts, T shirts, sun screen, mosquito spray, sandals and gently used clean clothes.

These welcome items can be dropped off at 10528-98 St. from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
