Aberdeen signs: Don't give change to panhandlers

There's no ordinance against panhandling in Aberdeen, but the Downtown Parking and Business Improvement District is putting up signs that urge people to keep their change.

Police Chief Bob Torgerson says people who want to help should give their money to charity.

KBKW reports the signs are based on ones in Spokane that say most of the money given to panhandlers goes to drugs and alcohol.
