OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — With temperatures expected to reach dangerous heat levels this week, Open Door Mission volunteers will be out for water patrol to provide water and relief to the homeless.

An excessive heat warning has been issued for the area due to high heat and humidity. Heat index values will top 110 degrees at times.

The front desk areas on Open Door Mission's campus are stocked with water to distribute to every adult and child that walks through the doors.

Anyone can call the Open Door Mission Men's Ministry at 402-422-1111 and ask for staff to report a person in need of a well being check-up. The Open Door Mission is also asking for sun screen, lip balm, bug spray, boxed fans, boxed meals, and cereal. These items can be dropped off at any of the Open Door Mission's family outreach/donation centers.
