How do you respond to beggars on University Avenue?

How do you respond to beggars on University Avenue? I'm trying hard to simply ignore and get to my end-point, but given the # & regularity of the people begging, seems like we citizens & business owners needs to decide whether or not we want University Ave's ambiance meaningfully damaged. I'm B2B, but if I had a retail biz on Univ., I'd be in front of the next City Council meeting demanding something be done.
BTW, I do give as I can to local charities, who clearly are not getting these folks off the street.
