Out of dramatic urgency and enormous need in our community, Houston Children’s Charity launched its newest program called “Kool Kidz.” Houston is the largest city in the state of Texas and the fourth-largest in the United States. In 2010, Houston broke the 1980 record of 32 days over 100 degrees and ended up with 46 days over 100 degrees. Can you imagine spending 46 days in that kind of heat without an air conditioner?
In a city this size, it’s an inevitable fact that a large number of Houston’s most needy families do not have an air conditioner; and in some cases, no air conditioner at all. The “Kool Kidz” program allows families the opportunity to stay cool during the hot summer months.
