Fun At-Home Family Kit Activities

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – This Saturday, August 14, residents are invited to pick up their free COOLING KIT with a personal cooling misting fan, along with a fun, at-home family activity and a snow cone as part of Reliant Energy’s “Beat the Heat” Program. The kits will be available through curbside pick-up at Broadmoor Senior Center, 1651 Tarlton Street, from 11 A.M. to 12 P.M.

Reliant has partnered with the Corpus Christi Parks & Recreation Department for the past 12 years to provide a safe way for Corpus Christi residents to stay cool during the hottest days of summer with its “Beat the Heat” Program.

Each week until September 18, Reliant and the Corpus Christi Parks & Recreation Department will provide a different personal mini cooling product, a fun at-home activity, and a cool snack to residents.

The curbside distribution schedule will be offered on Saturdays through September 18, 2021, from 11 A.M. to 12 P.M. at the designated locations. This week’s at-home activity varies by age group to include play packs, coloring books, word finds, painting kits, games, puzzles, woodshop kits, or bolt building kits. A limited quantity of 200 kits will be given out, one kit per person, and residents must be present to receive items.
