Helping Fresno's homeless with a text message

FRESNO, Calif.

The goal of the "First Steps Home" program is to raise a million dollars for homeless housing every year -- through donations from private citizens and corporations.

Starting today the city of Fresno has set up a program that allows you to make a donation simply by sending a text message.

Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin hopes this new campaign will help raise an additional ten thousand dollars by the end of the year.

The city is already half way to reaching its one million dollar goal.

To make a one-time ten dollar donation to Fresno First Steps Home ... text "home" to "85944".
