April 11, 2021 - In Honor of Ryan
You have a child. You give that child everything you’ve got to give. You blink! And they’re all grown up. They move out. And you pray... pray... pray for their journey.
This is Ryan. He passed away one year ago today. His mother made a donation with a note “My son passed away on Skid Row. It brings me a small amount of comfort knowing that he may have received one of your meals and a warm smile from you or one of your volunteers…“
So we decided to take her donation and buy Ryan’s favorite meal... Pizza.
In honor of Ryan and his heartbroken family, we handed out pepperoni pizzas today.
In the words of @tanksgoodnews
If you’ve ever lost someone to addiction, just know that they weren’t weak, their disease was just too strong.
Peaceful journey, Ryan

These little angels from @thegivingexpress made 350 AWESOME toiletry bags for us to pass out to the homeless. Teenagers working all weekend long. Several weekends in a row, to make sure that the homeless can survive on the streets.
We so very much appreciate all of your hard work! And ... Thank you to the mama bears for leading by example.

FIRST-SUNDAY OF DECEMBER ... already!!
A delicious meal delivered piping hot by the dynamic duo of @paynedotgov and her partner in crime @dougmccollough. They continue to amaze us with their generosity and down-home good vibes. Thank you!
We were out one night and this young man swooped up and asked what we were doing. Four weeks later, he showed up with a truck full of coats, cases of water, and enough energy to compete with our crew. @readykebede we are so very grateful for your hustle and amazing energy.
We taped an Alex Trebek quote onto 200 to-go containers. Peaceful journey, fine sir. Thanks for the years of wisdom.
