Many people want to help panhandlers on the street but aren’t sure exactly how to do so. Sure, you could give them cash, but that’s not helping them develop skills or move out of their current situation. Here’s something we based on what other street newspapers have done: information coupons.
These coupons can be given to panhandlers in place of money, both to give them information about Groundcover and to show them where people are more willing to give their money. Print them off and hand them out to panhandlers you see; it will get the ball rolling for them and hopefully end with them becoming a Groundcover vendor and developing skills that can help them get back on their feet.
