Street Sense is a D.C. area Newspaper that helps the homeless. Street Sense Publishes the newspaper, the vendors (homeless) buy the papers for 50 cent each, and the $2 donation that vendors receive from people on the street goes directly to them. It’s a great program that is sure to be around for many years to come.
