Dozens of people lined up on Houston and Frio Streets to get the supplies they need to keep cool in the San Antonio heat wave.
"This year is unique," Brad Mayhar with Salvation Army said. "Usually it's in June, sometimes July, and this year we're still in the month of May and we're already seeing those triple digit temperatures so I think we're in store for a real hot one this year."
The two organizations handed out snow cones, hot dogs, snacks, clothes and toiletries to people of all ages.
George Araujar said he made sure he stopped by before heading back to Alamo Heights.
"It's blazing hot," Araujar said. "They have compassionate people, you know, but I like this. They feed people, they give us clothing and stuff."
Sally Dunlop is a first-time volunteer. She said she was inspired by what the Salvation Army does on a regular basis and decided to join the team.
"We have a wonderful community here and we just need to help out as much as we can," Dunlop said.
