Moreno Valley helps seniors beat the heat

The Moreno Valley Senior Community Center is helping seniors beat the heat by participating in Riverside County’s Community Action Partnership Program "Cool Center." “The Senior Center serves as a drop-in site where individuals may go for relief from the high temperatures,” said Community Services Supervisor, Cecilia Gonzales. “As part of the program, the County provides the Senior Center heat warning notifications and provides snacks and water for the participants at time of activation,” she said.

The Senior Center’s "Cool Center" was activated today by Riverside County and is operational during regular Senior Center hours (Monday through Friday 7:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., Saturdays 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.).

For more information on the “Cool Center,” contact the Moreno Valley Parks and Recreation Department at 413-3280.
