Provide Hot Weather Relief This Summer

Protect People From The Heat

Long exposure to extreme heat increases the risk of conditions like dehydration and heat stroke. And worse—if you're experiencing homelessness, mental illness, health concerns, or malnutrition, the combination can be fatal. No person should have to face these life-threatening conditions.

Your help today means that UGM can reach even more men, women and families facing the heat this summer—not just providing relief, but saving lives.

UGM's Outreach Team is on the ground offering:

  • Hats, sunscreen, water bottles, compressed facecloths
  • Backpacks, t-shirt, shorts, lip balm, sunglasses, bandanas
  • Cold water through outreach and at UGM's 24/7 Reception
  • A safe, cool refuge at UGM's Reception and Drop-in Centre
