Tools for Business - Sponsor a Meter

HOST Meter Graphic 2


Businesses can help discourage panhandling and support the HOST (Homeless Outreach Service Team) program by sponsoring a red HOST meter at their business location.

Additional materials are also available for businesses such as 12" x 18" signage (see below), stickers for check out areas and window clings to help educate the public about the HOST program and encouraging direct charitable giving to homeless service organizations or to the HOST program rather than directly to panhandlers.

For more information, to sponsor a meter or obtain educational materials and signage, contact the Downtown Alliance at or 801-333-1106.
