MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The city of Memphis has a warming center for those in need.
The centers are places where residents dealing with extremely low temperatures may escape after normal business hours for city government buildings.
The warming center at the North Frayser Community Center opens 7:00 p.m. Saturday, January 15, 2022, and will stay open through Monday, January 17th, 2022. The hours of operation are 7:00 PM-7:00 AM.
The city had plans to open the warming center at Marion Hale Community Center in east Memphis, but had to move the location due to unforeseen mechanical issues there.
