On May 15, 2017 I posted about the first parking meter installed outside the Joel D. Valdez main library in downtown Tucson, for people to donate their extra change (or donate via credit/debit card) to help aid homeless people. This project is sponsored by the Tucson Change Movement. More info and photos on the FB page: https://www.facebook.com/TucsonChange/.
Recently four other such green/blue parking meters were installed — 1) outside Public Works Center at 201 N. Stone Avenue 2) at Mercado San Agustin at 100 S. Avenida del Convento 3) at Tucson Children’s Museum at 200 S. 6th Avenue and 4) TCC Arena, 260 S. Church Ave. Photos courtesy of Tucson Change Movement below.
So, drop off your extra change whenever you’re walking by these venues in downtown, or near downtown. The homeless can certainly use the help, especially in the hot summer months.
Tucson Change Movement is advocating a change in people’s attitude towards homelessness, by soliciting spare change.
