Donation Station Coming to Downtown

A retired parking meter will be painted red and set downtown to bring in money for our city's homeless.

The parking meter is part of a partnership between the Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta and the City of Las Vegas. The coins gathered through the parking meter will go to the city's Housing and Homeless Services program. According to the 2011 Homeless Count 9,432 people are homeless in southern Nevada. The recession has increased demand for basic services. The money gathered by the parking meter will help fill that gap.

Delta Sigma Theta is a sorority started in 1913 at Howard University. It will unveil the special parking meter at a convention at The Mirage Thursday.
