Helping the Homeless

Helping the Homeless

Every day on my drive to and from work, I see hundreds of men and women living on the streets of Los Angeles.   It's completely unimaginable how they survive with only the clothes on their backs.  It's simply heart breaking to think of all the struggles they must go through on a daily basis.  Simple things that we all take for granted like, clean water, a shower, clean clothes, something to eat! You always hear people complaining about the homeless population, but why aren't these same people trying to help the problem, find solutions instead of just complaining about them?  


For ten years I have seen a man live on the corner under plastic.  No tent, no shopping cart, just the clothes on his back and one backpack.  I have often given him my lunch, bought him food, but always fell like I can do more!  It's for him and thousands more, is the reason I try my best raise funds!


 I want help bring change to the 53,000 people living on the streets of L.A. This is my third year proudly walking with Team Trojan. The first year I walked, I raised the most on my team at $1000.00. Last year I didn't raise the most, but I did beat my first years funds at $1100.00!  This year with your help, I'd like to raise $1500.00!!  


I know things may be tight for some of us, but every little bit helps, $5.00, $10.00, $20.00, $50.00, $100.00!!!  With your donation, someone living on the street may have a clean bed to sleep in tonight.All because of your help!!

Thanks for your support!!
