In the Spirit of Giving - Making Spirits Bright This Holiday Season

Monday, December 23, 2019

While traveling and staying in Arizona this year for the winter we met by chance, a 22 year old homeless man. We had seen him where we were camping, with two run down, not running, class C motor homes.  We had approached him one day, seeing he needed help, and helped to push the two motor homes off the road. One was totally gutted and one he lived in. Neither had value, but both in his name. To make things short and sweet, he was down on his luck. He said no one wanted to stop for him. He said people would either drive by and stare, or be on their phones calling someone to report him , as he was always approached by the sheriffs.

He was  waiting to get back on his feet and go to school in Jan. through JobCorps, we were told. ( His motor homes he said he will leave for another homeless friend when he leaves).

We have been helping him in the mean time with getting around, food, moral support, etc. He has nothing really. He has offered to do things for us like wash vehicles, but we have refused, as we feel good about helping. He has done odd jobs as well for people he knows. He has a bike to get around most of the time, but he's been having it tough. 

We thought we would share his story and we wanted to make the holidays a little brighter for him. We wanted to let him know people care, and we wanted to debunk the stigma about the homeless. That not all may be on drugs, or have mental disease, etc. Some are really just down on their luck, and by showing people we care, we can make them feel better about life and themselves.

We want at this time to thank some of our friends and businesses who have given so freely to make spirits bright for our young man. You truly DID make him feel good.
