The city of San Francisco announced today that Google has made a $2 million donation to three charities benefiting the homeless. The money will go to Larkin Street Youth Services, Hamilton Family Center, and HandUp, according to a report from Mashable.

A full $1 million will go to the Hamilton Family Center, which locates homeless families through the public school system and helps them find a place to live.

The other two charities will each get half a million. HandUp is an organization that locates donors with an interest in helping the homeless and puts them in contact with those who need their help. Larkin Street Youth Services specializes in providing job training and resources to the homeless.

Google has made quite a few charitable donations this year, ranging from the donation of school supplies to teachers in Massachusetts to auctioning off coffee with Eric Schmidt.
