BRING THE CHANGE
Providing Community Minded Education About Available Social Services
Campaign sponsored by the Chelan-Douglas County Homeless/Housing Program
The Bring The Change campaign committee has been established as a resource for the Chelan and Douglas county communities to provide education about giving to those in need and to ensure that charitable donations are appropriately and honestly utilized.
The Cities of Wenatchee and East Wenatchee are developing regulation to address safety concerns on behalf of the community in relation to solicitation throughout the cities. Contrary to popular belief, panhandling is a legal activity and it is important to understand that regulations are to prevent endangerment of our citizens and obstruction of public right-of-way. The community and our partners are what will make the ultimate difference by changing the way we give to those in need.
Here is the PDF for Veterans Resources mentioned in the business card.
