Last month, the City of Spokane installed bright orange Give Real Change meters throughout the city. Money donated to these Give Real Change meters helps fund Spokane’s 24/7 shelter system. This system is made up of more than 30 community organizations that partner with the City to reduce, prevent, and end homelessness.
Since the Give Real Change launch on September 12th, the Spokane community has donated $471.28! Citizens have donated $347.08 by rounding up their utility bills, $61.35 has been donated via credit card at Give Real Change meters and $62.85 has been donated via meter or in person at the My Spokane 311 desk in City Hall.
Are you interested in donating to the Give Real Change campaign? You can donate by calling 311, rounding up your utility bill, or at a Give Real Change meter. Bright orange Give Real Change meters can be found at the following locations:
These meters accept both coin and credit card donations!
Additional meters will be installed at the Spokane Airport, STA Plaza, Riverfront Park, and inside RiverPark Square.
