Warming Centers Attract More Than Homeless

Warming centers open to anyone seeking relief from the cold

The deep freeze prompted the City of Memphis to open three "warming centers."  I was tasked with finding a family or people seeking relief in one of them.  It worried me a little.  People are prideful and are not always willing to talk about potential hardships.  However, I found at least two men who were willing to share their stories.  One of them even brought his 10 year-old son with him to stay warm.  I was glad to see people taking advantage of something that really could keep them safe, and warm.
