An Ovations Award Nominee
For the homeless, I have given food and water for their pets and also given them food or money for themselves. I don’t always have cash, but I’ll grab things while I’m in the store and give it to them on my way out to my car. It can be a cruel world and everyone has challenges that they face so if I can help someone, I do. What they do with it is up to them, I just pray that it will help them to a better path.
