Backpacks specially designed for homeless people are going to be handed out in Chicago this fall.

The first of 2,300 of them were distributed at Chicago Lights Elam Davies Social Service Center on Friday.

Chicago businessman Ron Kaplan started the project and says homeless people had input in the design of the waterproof backpacks.
