Parking Meters For The Homeless Go High Tech

DENVER (CBS4) – The parking meters used to collect donations for Denver’s homeless are going high tech.

Denver’s Road Home unveiled new smart meters for the donations on Thursday. Three companies donated 85 new meters. They will allow people to donate with debit or credit cards as well still dropping in spare change.

“In total, Denver’s Road Home has raised more than $200,000 from the donation meters and additionally generated a lot of public awareness, which is key,” Bennie Milliner with Denver’s Road Home said.

Milliner says the meters means more of that spare change goes to programs to combat homelessness rather to panhandlers.
