There was a recent story in Portland, Oregon about the prosecution of two homeless individuals who stole power from a street outlet to charge their cell phones. The community was outraged at the move because of the cost of the hearings and the injustice of it all. The Salvation Army, on the other hand, heard the story and got to work creating a phone charging station in the entryway of their women’s shelter. It was exactly the right response and it’s been met with lots of gratitude. Here’s a link to the story.
