A new vending machine in Muncie, Indiana, isn’t a normal vending machine. This one has a purpose to serve more than human greed. Isn’t stocked with poisonous sodas and junk food. It dispenses winter basics like warm clothing, socks, and blankets, and instead of charging cash or credit cards, it gives away these items for free to the community.
The vending machine was set up outside the local fire department to service the up to 200 people without permanent homes in Delaware County, Indiana. If you or someone in need wants to utilize this, you or they have to first have to register with the charity organization Bridges Community Services.
There they are given free tokens that can be used to access the vending machine.
Every item currently in the Indiana vending machine was donated by a member of the community, and Bridges Community Services is still accepting donations. If you would like to help or donate, contact them now.
