Homeless Check-off Proposed

A proposal is being floated to add a voluntary check-off on Minnesota income tax returns to provide money for food shelves and homeless shelters.

“Minnesotans are known for their generosity and kindness toward others, especially those who are down on their luck,” Rep. John Lesch, DFL-St. Paul. “By streamlining the donating process for shelters and food shelves we are making it easier for our citizens to carry on this tradition.”

The idea for donating the voluntary $1 donation came from a St. Paul high school junior.
