Amazon (AMZN) is partnering with local nonprofit Mary’s Place to create 65 rooms, which will house more than 200 homeless people every night.

 

“Mary’s Place does incredible, life-saving work every day for women, children, and families experiencing homelessness in the Seattle community,” Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said in a statement. “We are lucky to count them as neighbors and thrilled to offer them a permanent home within our downtown Seattle headquarters.”
