Panhandling has become an obvious actvity in Lansing Township. Today, one may find this trend to be quite common specifically in the Frandor area. “I panhandle simply because I need help with my rent,” said 27-year-old James Robinson, who recently was panhandling on the corner of East Michigan Avenue and South Homer Street. “I do have a criminal background, so that makes it really hard for me to find a decent paying job. I have only been panhandling for two months now and have been making little progress everyday.”
