Billionaire Jeff Bezos has pledged $2.5 million to a Minneapolis nonprofit that helps the homeless.
Simpson Housing Services said the grant from the Amazon founder and CEO is the largest in its 35-year history.
The donation will help the organization expand its family housing program over the next four years.
The nonprofit has recently helped move people living at a large homeless encampment in south Minneapolis into a temporary shelter across the highway. As many as 300 people lived at the camp, where safety concerns surfaced.
