Safe storage

The article, "City staff deal with downtown cleanup." contains a lament for the cavalier way that some of the homeless treat donated clothing, bedding and such. I suggest that one reason the homeless may abandon donated items is that they have no secure places to store their meagre belongings. We could provide lockers for daily storage their "treasures" as a first step toward improving their lot.

Another step would be in having postal savings accounts as they have (or had) in Australia. With a safe place to hold their occasional incomes they would not have the choice of either blowing their money or risking robbery.
