Milwaukee airport plan to help the homeless

Posted: Updated:

MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- That loose change jingling around in your pocket might actually be put to good use.

A new proposal is in the works to put coin collection bins outside of Milwaukee Airport terminals to raise money for the homeless.

Officials say similar programs in other airports have raised more than $300,000.

"As long as somebody doesn't take it our for a different purpose. If it goes to the homeless, that's great," said Stephen Kersten who was at the airport.

The plan is now headed to the Milwaukee County Board for a vote.
