The change of seasons is upon us and it has given me the desire to clean out my closets and get rid of clothes that I either can no longer wear because they don't fit, or just clothes that I know full well I'll never wear again.
I stopped by the Salvation Army in Allentown to donate my clothes to those who need them. This is what I was met with:
Parking meters? Really? Not a hardship for me, certainly. I can spare the quarter and a dime my visit required, but those in need of the Salvation Army's services or wishing to donate their time to a good cause should not have to pay to park.
I realize the privilege of parking there may be abused by visitors to the taxpayer-funded hockey arena currently being contructed a few blocks away, but the city should not levy a fee against those wanting to help or in need of help.
