Employees rescue birds from dangerous heat
Last week’s scorching heat could have proven fatal for some young birds if it wasn’t for the eagle eyes of employees.
At three SRP facilities, record-setting temperatures drove baby birds to jump from their nests, which had become too hot. The birds were too young to fly though and ended up on the ground, unable to escape the sun.
SRP contributes to nonprofits serving community during record heat wave
As record high temperatures continue to impact the Valley, SRP is providing relief to five local nonprofits helping vulnerable populations deal with the extreme high temperatures.
We are contributing a total of $110,000 to the Salvation Army – Southwest Division, St. Vincent de Paul Society, City of Phoenix Mayor’s “We’re Cool” Heat Relief Drive, United Food Bank and AZCEND Chandler Christian Community Center.
Customer Cooling Center for residents
We are opening our Pinal Customer Center to offer area residents a cool, safe place during this week’s excessive heat warning days, as issued by the National Weather Service.
Local artists create murals to beautify community
On a recent weekday, Arizona artist Ignacio Garcia stood in front of his empty canvas: A plain mustard-brown wall next to a gas station, a car wash and a convenience store, all along a busy nondescript Phoenix street.
As he prepared the wall for the mural he planned to paint, a few curious onlookers stopped by.
