Abandoned Airport Clothes May Go to Vets

RepresentativeAbandoned Clothing for Veterans - Veterans Affordable Housing Program Kathy Hochul, D-N.Y., wants to give abandoned clothing and accessories left at airport checkpoints to homeless veterans. Hochul introduced the Clothe a Homeless Hero Act last week, which would direct the TSA to supply local veterans’ organizations with the unclaimed clothing for use by homeless veterans and their dependents. The bill will allow airports and the TSA to choose the charity, and she expects the bill to have no impact on the country’s limited budgets.

The House Homeland Security Committee recently put forth a proposal which would donate the loose change that travelers leave at airport checkpoints to the USO. The money is currently being used by the TSA, and if directed towards veterans charities could provide nearly $400,000 a year towards needy vets. The proposal is currently in limbo, waiting on the House. The TSA currently has discretion for the distribution of abandoned property, and can donate it to any organization it desires.
