DES MOINES, Iowa -- Cold temperatures aren't stopping some people from getting outside and enjoying some ice skating.

It was too cold Sunday for the Brenton Skating Plaza to remain open, but Monday morning it opened back up for Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

There's an incentive to bundle up and go skating, your trip around the rink goes to help the homeless. Admission to the rink is free until 9:00 a.m.

Donations of sock, gloves, hats, and warm clothing are being accepted at the door. They will be given to local homeless shelters.

Van and Bonnie from WHO Radio are also there reporting live.

The rink is expected to remain open until 9:00 p.m. Monday.
