Philanthropy group heads petition drive to use public buildings for shelters

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Some San Diego philanthropists are asking city and county officials to open up government-owned buildings to reduce homelessness.

Today, the Lucky Duck Foundation announced the start of a petition drive to help get more people off the street.

One of the buildings being targeted by the foundation is the former Chargers practice facility on Murphy Canyon Road in Kearny Mesa. They say the building and its fields, formerly known as Chargers Park, could provide shelter to a significant number of homeless people.
