The first time we met Richard he was very shy but also very kind and complimented our Vice President Brie. The second time we met Richard his friends called him “Legend” and when we gave him new socks he showed us how his size 17 shoes were completely busted up. We posted a picture and within minutes one of our followers on social media messaged us that she ordered a pair of size 17 Nike’s and they were on the way. Richard’s eyes lit up when we handed him his new pair of shoes. If you live in Phoenix you can sometimes see him by the 10 Freeway offramp at 7th st. Please say hi to him if you see him.
We met Peter as he was writing poetry in the park. He spends most of his days writing and his goal is to eventually have his work get published.
Clarance was an interesting character. He told us he was an Intergalactic Minister. Clarance was very kind and blessed us for the new shirt, new pair of socks and toiletry supplies we gave him.
On our second trip out we had brought new pairs of socks to be handed out and Daniel had touched us so much that we went out looking for him. We found him and when I handed him the new socks he broke into tears again. He pointed to the socks he head on and they were caked with dirt and grime. He immediately sat down and put on his new socks. His face had the biggest smile when he had his new socks on.
Richard was definitely surprised by us giving him goodies but he really got excited when we handed him the letter of hope and told him that someone from across the country wrote him a letter of encouragement. By the time we reached by truck Richard was sitting on the ground reading his letter.
