Central Valley Cooling Centers

When triple digiit temperatures hit the Central Valley, most cities and counties open cooling centers to allow people relief from the sweltering heat.

Some communities offer free bus transportation and public swimming pools as well.

With summer approaching and weekend temperatures predicted to exceed 100, Sierra Vista Mall has partnered with the City of Clovis to serve residents during periods of extreme heat.  Residents are welcome to stay cool at Sierra Vista Mall Monday through Friday 10am to 9pm, Saturday 10am to 8pm and Sunday 11am to 6pm on any day when the National Weather Service predicts Clovis temperatures to be 100 degrees or greater.  While there, participants can expect a cool environment, and access complimentary water at the customer service booth. Non-service animals are not allowed in the mall. All Clovis residents are reminded to take the following safety precautions during extreme heat:

 

Slow Down - Strenuous activities should be reduced, eliminated or rescheduled to the coolest time of the day.  Individuals at risk should stay in the coolest available place, not necessarily at home.

Help A Family Honor Their Daughter's Wishes

Help A Family Honor Their Daughter's Wishes

Brittany Wilkinson's wish was to help people understand Mitochondrial Disease, and show compassion to people of all abilities. Now, her family and legion of friends carry on that wish. She brought awareness all the way to Washington DC, became the Youth Ambassador for The United Mitochondria Disease Foundation, helped bring awareness to our Central Valley communities with Mito Week every September, and touched the lives with her Grace, Hope and unwaivering Faith. 

You are invited to help continue that wish. KMPH FOX 26's Kim Stephens MC's this event every year. There is a delicious dinner with compelling and interresting speakers, along with a generous raffle and many alluring silent auction items.
