WASHINGTON, D.C. (WWBT) -

A Washington, D.C. charity is collecting used Metro cards from those who visited the nation's capital for the March For Our Lives rally.

Miriam's Kitchen posted on Facebook asking visitors to mail in their Metro SmarTrip cards so they can be redistributed to people who are homeless.

"If you don't want to keep your Metro SmartTrip card after your visit -- don't throw it away!" the organization wrote. "The cards cost $2 each (not including subway or bus fare) and can make a big difference for someone trying to get to a medical appointment, to a shelter, or to get a warm meal."

Those who are interested can send their cards to:

Miriam's Kitchen
Attn: Brenda Segal
2401 Virginia Avenue, NW
Washington, D.C. 20037

The organization is also asking those who donate their cards to put the remaining balance on a sticky note.
