Wash Station Set Up To Help Homeless People During Pandemic

The United Way of Central Ohio and the City of Columbus have teamed up to set up a portable wash station in a parking lot at Cleveland Avenue and Broad Street to help the homless clean up. 

The facility is designed to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 among the homeless population. The Capital Crossroads and the Discovery Special Improvement Districts have also placed several portable restrooms in their areas for public access.  The facilities will be available through at least mid-July.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
