A tech giant offers a helping hand to the homeless.

FOX's Carmen Roberts reports:

Amazon.com, the online retailer know for selling nearly everything, is giving the homeless something very valuable, a place to live.

The company's offering a building it owns in downtown Seattle as a temporary shelter for more than 200 homeless people.

Amazon bought the building as part of its new corporate campus, but construction won't start for at least a year, so the company will let a non-profit operate it as a rent-free shelter until then.

The building was originally a Travelodge Hotel, then a college dorm, so it'll be easy for families to move right in starting Monday.
