Today in our vendor wishes series, Street Sense vendor Sheila has a message for the US government about affordable housing. Read more vendor’s thoughts here, we’ll be adding more each day until the new year.
By Sheila White, 55, who sells Street Sense in Betheda, Maryland, USA
My wish for 2017 is for the world to just get along. My goal is starting school and finishing it. This time next year, I’d like to be back in my own apartment and completing one year of college.
My hope for Street Sense is that we have over one thousand vendors. Also that we have a women’s group.
To help solve homelessness, the government could spend more money on building affordable housing and repairs on old ones.
My message to street paper vendors: be safe when selling papers, remember to always be polite.
