YMCA opens for kids in cold
Chicago YMCAs prepare for more people as cold weather sets in.

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicago's YMCA centers are beefing up staff so children have somewhere to go after school during the cold weather.

"With the weather, it will be even busier," Reginald Armstrong, Southside YMCA director, said.

Dr. Alison Tothy, a pediatrician at Comer Children's Hospital, hopes parents will take advantage of the YMCA and other indoor activities for kids. Children are particularly susceptible to dangerous cold.
