Innovative Way to Help the Homeless


Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper unveiled a new plan to help the homeless today. Old parking meters have been restored and placed downtown. The idea is for you to feed the old meters, and all monies will go to help the homeless.

The money will be used by several organizations to provide meals, job training, substance abuse counseling and housing to the homeless.


Shorter version: Feed the meters, not the panhandlers.
