San Diego is going to install converted parking meters to raise money for homelessness programs.

The primary use of any money raised will be for:

“move-in kits”—bedding, toiletries, kitchen supplies and basic furniture—which cost roughly $1,000 each to put together.

Meters are located in Horton Plaza, near the Lyceum Theatre, and at the First and Fourth avenue entrances. Plans are to have more in the downtown area, you can read more in the original post below.
