SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - June 12, 2013) - Denver community members looking for an opportunity to help the homeless will be able to easily make a donation by swiping their debit or credit card or dropping spare change at any of the Better Way to Give donation stations located throughout the city. San Diego-based IPS Group, Inc. provided 85 new, light blue donation smart parking meters capable of accepting both debit and credit card and change donations to Denver's Road Home Program, in partnership with Wyless, Arrow Electronics and Denver Public Works. The color blue was selected for the meters because of its symbolic nature. "Blue symbolizes strength, new beginnings and optimism -- all qualities the homeless must embrace on their journey to self-sufficiency," said Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock. As part of the launch, Denver's Road Home announced it would designate all meter donations for the next year towards mental health services and substance abuse treatment.
