As winter approaches, this new vending machine is being stocked with warm blankets and clothing for the homeless – and all of it can be accessed for free.
The vending machine is readily available to the 200 homeless people who are currently living in Muncie, Indiana. All they have to do to access the supplies is register with local community services.
Once registered, they are given vending machine tokens that can be used to take the goods for free.
All the machine’s contents were donated by local residents who want to offer their support to the needy.
“We know that they are out there. Some are in shelters, some are in different living situations,” Karee Buffin with the Bridges Community Services Fund told RTV6.
“We really want to use something like this to reach out to people. It does demonstrate that our community cares.”
