Get rid of campaign signs; help the homeless

Nov 14, 2012

Now that the election is over, you may have some old campaign signs laying around.

Instead of tossing them out and allowing them to land in a landfill, you have an opportunity tonight to recycle them in a way that will help the homeless of Cincinnati.

A group called Re:Signed to Help is collecting political yard signs and plans to "re-purpose" them - converting them into water-resistant blankets that will be donated to the City Gospel Mission and be distributed to the homeless.

You can drop off your signs from 4 to 9 p.m. today at Japps at 1134 Main Street in Over-the-Rhine, where, if you donate, you can also enjoy $5 "hot totties," $2 Yuengling beers and treats from Mayberry's restaurant in Over-the-Rhine.

More information on Re:Signed to Help can be found at the group's Facebook page.
