Hal

Hal

This hilarious gentleman is named Hal and when we gave him a new shirt he immediately put on our shirt. Asked Hal if we could take a picture and he said “Let me get in my best pose” 😂 Hal was such a great guy and was truly a pleasure being able to meet him today. We look forward to launching our shower/laundry trailer and having our volunteers get to meet people like Hal. Hal breaks all the stereotypes on what the homeless are like. Hal’s shoes were falling apart but we didn’t have any size...

Cecil

This is Cecil, and to say he was excited about his new pair of Nike’s would be the understatement of the year. Cecil kept everyone organized and in line as we were handing out supplies. Cecil made sure others who were asleep, woke up, and came over to get some goodies. Cecil was telling everyone how good they looked when they put on the shirts we gave them. I hope to Cecil again and hopefully when we get our shower trailer on the streets. Would love to get Cecil on video and help change the...

Greg

Greg’s smile tells you how happy he was when he opened the box and saw a new pair of Nike’s ! When Greg first came over he was not talking and just nodding. I noticed his shoes looked rough and asked him what size he wore. After opening the box, Greg was smiling and talking a mile a minute. It is so amazing seeing how much a pair of shoes can change a persons perspective. Thank you so much to everyone following our page, leaving comments, and donating to our nonprofit. We are so grateful for...

Blake

This is Blake and was so great meeting this amazing soul. Blake recently had major surgery on his left leg and foot. He told me the doctors wanted to amputate but he wanted surgery instead. Showed me the massive scar on his upper thigh. He was so grateful and had a great time talking with him. When his foot heals up we will have a new pair of size 14’s shoes for him. Thank you so much to all who support our nonprofit. Without your help, none of this would be possible. Have a great day my...

Richard – a.k.a “Legend”

Richard – a.k.a “Legend”

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...

Daniel Gets New Socks

Daniel Gets New Socks

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

Richard

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.
