That comes into my work and just breaks my heart. I don't know his whole story, but what I do know is that he lives alone, can't work, walks EVERYWHERE he goes because he can't afford any type of transportation, and he has nothing. He gets a little bit of money from the government, but that goes to cover his rent, and then its gone. He searches the parking lot for money because he has no money to feed himself. He goes to the salvation army because they will give him a care package, and he sometimes goes to a mission for a breakfast. He said he doesn't like to go because "there are people who are hungrier, and people with children" He doesn't eat for days!!! I know that he is being honest because he buys NOTHING except for the tiny bit he can afford (and its not like a bag of chips because that won't last him) and he came in the other day and I could just SEE it on his face that he was hungry. He looked pale and I felt so sad for him. He is the nicest man and I just feel SO bad for him!! I gave him the food that was "spoiled" (like it was an hour old according to standards) which could get my fired from my job. I started thinking about what I could do to help him because he would really appreciate it... and all I can think of is to try to collect some non perishable food for him. He keeps telling me he needs to buy a pan to cook his hotdogs in... and its obvious that he has nothing. I will probably look at some thrift stores for pots and pans for him. Is anyone willing to help me help this man??! I have seen posts like this on HYS but then I hear about people sending mean emails because they don't believe the person and such... should I post it on there?  

Mrs. H --- 8 years ago -

I think that it is wonderful that you want to help this man. Don't worry if someone is mean to you for trying to help. Your heart is in the right place. We are going to be out of town for a bit, but I will check back on this posts progress when we return. 

tricia --- 8 years ago -

shes right paige... it really doesnt matter what other ppl think... u have the option to take what ppl MAY say and use it or ignore it. dont let those ppl with "mean" emails get to you. you are a better person ... just keep that in mind. 

Leah --- 8 years ago -

I've got a frying pan and a pot he can have, and some dishes if he needs them, though they are pink and have flowers on them. Oh and some silverware :D 

jennifer --- 8 years ago -

that is sad... and do what feels right, whether people judge or not! If he needs the help, then it will come if the right people make it happen and if your heart is in the right place. I have blankets if needed, maybe two. I will be on vacation for two weeks but will be back on the 23rd, if you need them just ask and I can get them to you. 

chris --- 8 years ago -

HI,,I HAVE SOME MENS SHIRTS 4 FREE! IF YOU CAN MAYBE GUESS, IF HE COULD WEAR A XL--OR 2X.. 

jennifer --- 8 years ago -

I have some MRE's we used for camping if you want them. IDK how many are left or what kind they are, but they are still good. I am also going thru the pantry before our pcs, and i can give you our goods as opposed to throwing them out. jenniferbiddick@yahoo.com if you're interested :) 

jennifer --- 8 years ago -

Oh, I also have some pans :) 

★Elizabeth★ --- 8 years ago -

after i get back from my easter weekend trip i was planning on cleaning out my pantry of all the things i dont need. ill let you know what i find. i know there are lots of canned goods i dont plan on using. do you know where this man lives so we could maybe make a secret middle of the night drop off? he probably has alot of pride and i would feel bad if i hurt that. secret donations i feel are better in this case. 

Vanessa --- 8 years ago -

I might have some mens shirt and shorts I will look through hubbys stuff. He wont even know they are missing 

Vanessa --- 8 years ago -

I found a few tee shirts you can also have for free if interested pm me 

Carel --- 8 years ago -

What can I do to help? I have men's clothes,sleeping blanket,I also have some food if you need that to..If you do a secret drop off let me know I will go with you..Is he homeless? Does he need any furniture? Thank you so much Paige for helping him..Please let me know what I can do to help...Where does he hang out at? What size clothes does he wear? Please let me know..Thank you..Ps my mom also have lots of stuff she said she could give to also help... 

Vanessa --- 8 years ago -

Carel --- 8 years ago -

I can get a can opener? 

Vanessa --- 8 years ago -

morgan --- 8 years ago -

Ok I know this may not be the best but I have a couch he can have. Its def not in the perfect condition my puppies decided to chew on the side of it. Its been sitting outside since our flood in august. So it needs to be cleaned but I don't have a cleaner. Once it gets cleaned its super soft and cumfy. I have a way to get it there just need to borrow a cleaner from someone. I also have sheets and pans.I have a tiny georgeforman also. Does he have a tv or anything. I don't have a tv to give but I'm sure I can come up with movies or vhs since it has to be boring to just sit at home. I will try and see if I have anything else once nap time gets over. 

Leah --- 8 years ago -

I'm sure she'll be really happy that you guys have helped, and him too! 

morgan --- 8 years ago -

Vanessa --- 8 years ago -

morgan --- 8 years ago -

Sorry for all the exrta post my comp keeps freezing while i was trying to edit 

Ashley --- 8 years ago -

I have a microwave, its missing the glass plate but it works fine with out it as long as you have something on a plate or in a bowl. I also have a bit of food he can have a few boxes of velveta shells and cheese and those lipton rice and noodle packages, some cereal probably about a boxful at least 

Ashley --- 8 years ago -

I also have coffee filters if he drinks coffee, sugar, extra boxes of cold brew lipton, as well as the single drink mixes for juice and lemonade. 

morgan --- 8 years ago -

I have a coffee maker. Its the kind that pours into two cups but I'm missing one of the cups but it can be set to just poor into that one. I also have probly around 6 or 8 small coffee cups. 

Ashley --- 8 years ago -

I could clear out some of our regular glasses, our cabinets are not large enough for our glass set so I have small and large glasses. Lord knows I need the room for sippy cups anyways.. lol Ive got like tuna fish and stuff like that with crackers.. I have made a few of these posts and gotten really lucky with donations, I normally sponsor a family for christmas and people will go buy gifts and wrap them for the children and parent. One couple went out and bought a whole christmas dinner. I have never had any mean emails though. I just felt weird because you meet this family and wanna help and then they just act kinda wierd when you actually do help them and they never talk to you again.. lol So I decided I was not going to sponsor someone for a while because I never really got the response I was looking for from the families they just kinda acted like it was nothing which made me feel uncomfortable and etc etc 

Ashley --- 8 years ago -

I dont have a an extra pitcher for the tea so if someone has a pitcher, I have measuring cups and sugar and tea :0)
