TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Sparing some change to make a change.

It's a new program announced Wednesday by Tallahassee city leaders to help provide support and services to nearly 550 homeless children in the capital city.

As part of the program, Tallahassee utility customers can contribute by having their utility bills rounded up to the nearest dollar amount.

In a release to WTXL, city leaders say the Change for Change program would provide basic needs and emergency services to help homeless families and individuals in Tallahassee. Services include shelter programs, education, and training. Recipients of the funds would include America's Second Harvest of the Big Bend, Capital Area Community Action Agency and the HOPE Community.
