Arlington, Marysville say no to panhandlers

Recognizing that panhandling is community-wide program that adversely impacts our cities, neighborhoods and businesses, the cities of Arlington and Marysville are asking residents and visitors to keep their wallets closed to panhandlers. 

A new community resource flyer provides information tips for people who want to help those in need along with a list and map of free resources for people who need hot meals, groceries and/or clothing. 

“When you give money to a panhandler, you can’t know how it will be spent,” said Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring. “When you want to donate, please consider giving to a local charity instead.”

Arlington Mayor Barbara Tolbert added, “We all want to feel safe in our community. Giving to organizations, rather than to panhandlers, helps ensure that homeless residents can get the help they need.”

The resource handout is available at both City Halls (238 N. Olympic Ave., Arlington, and 1049 State Ave., Marysville). It’s also online at and both city websites ( and to view and print.
