LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - A local organization is offering to watch your kids for free as you head to the polls.
The La Crosse YMCA will watch children from infancy to age seven for up to two hours next Tuesday. The service is open to anyone in the community, including non-members.
The Y is ready to safely watch your children to help make Election Day a little easier.
"I think it's important to recognize how important it is to get out and vote, and that the Y is here really to support our community, to support our parents, to be able to make that process a little bit easier, because it is challenging at times," said Dahl Family YMCA Child Watch and Preschool Director Jodi Iverson.
The free child care is only available during the Y's regular 'Child Watch' hours, from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and again from 3:30 to 8 that evening.
