On May 31, my friend and I set forward to help feed the homeless. We drove around Huntington Beach, Westminster, Garden Grove, and Fountain Valley handing out pizza.
I first came up with this idea when watching Youtube videos of a group of men going out of their way to take a homeless man to eat at a buffet, shower, buy new clothes, and get a hair cut. I thought it was pretty cool and i wanted to do something similar to it, except blowing a lot of money, so I bought two boxes of pizza.
The project didn’t take long to do, for it was only about 2 hours. However, out of those 2 hours, about 2/3 of it was driving around trying to find homeless. It appears as if you can’t find something you need when you need it, and you keep running into something when you don’t want to. Most of the homeless accepted the charity, but others declined for unknown reasons. After finishing this project, it made me feel really good about myself. I finally understand what athletes mean when they describe their “giving back to the community” acts.
