This is a suggestion my niece made to me a few months ago. She thinks that the old Reifsnyder piano shop and former gun shop in Manheim Township should be used as a homeless shelter.

Nothing fancy, just a place where homeless people could sleep and get out of bad weather.

The same thing goes for any empty storefront.

It seems a shame that so many places are empty when they can be put to good use.
