The Bay Area is receiving 280 vouchers to get homeless veterans permanent housing.
People who received vouchers instead of cash during Marin County’s gun buyback event last month can redeem them Feb. 15, according to the Marin County District Attorney’s Office.
Authorities in Marin took in several dozen guns over the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday – even though the gun owners received nothing in return for their participation in the county’s latest gun surrender program, which took place Monday at the Mill Valley Police Department.
Marin County’s gun buyback program has become a victim of its own success.
The turnout ended up being so big that county officials actually ran out of money within hours, having to hand out vouchers instead.
When an airline makes a mistake, they often offer travel vouchers as a form of compensation, but these vouchers may cost customers more than it’s worth to use them.
