Donation parking meter

I spotted this meter downtown just outside of Big Grove. The idea behind it is that you can put your change into it and the money will go to helping local homeless people. is the website associated with the meter and touts that a mere 65 cents donated will pay for a nights stay at a shelter including meals. The program is sponsored by our local mental health program Community Elements. 

What do you think about this idea? Will it “change” anything?
