He Helps the Homeless in an Amazing Way

This is an amazing story about a retired Minnesota teacher known as the ‘Sandwich Man’ who is dedicating every day of his life the helps the homeless.  Allen Law has dedicated his life to helping the homeless in Minneapolis.  He retired from work as a teacher to start his new career providing for people who need help.  He goes out each night driving a van taking what is needed to the people who need it the most.  Does he do it alone?  No but without his help it wouldn’t get done. 363 is the number on the side of his van.  ”That number represents the days that most people don’t think of the poor”says Allen.  ”I will be out there every night”.  There  is no stopping him.  He hands out sandwiches, bus tokens, socks and other necessities.  He uses what he has and what others share with him to make this happen. Like his brother who offered for him to use his apartment while he was away and Allen filled it with socks, blankets and storage of other donations. That is not to mention his own house and the 17 freezers that hold the sandwiches that the churches and civic organizations make for him. Over 700,00 sandwiches which he drops off at homeless shelters.  He is a special kind of man.  Thank you Allen for your dedication.  You are amazing.

Have a GREAT day…by making it a great day for someone else!!!

Retired Marine Steps In To Help

School has started again in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.  Retired Marine Cpl Lewis Alston noticed that cars would not stop for the children close to Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary School.  He knew that something had to be done before something terrible happened.  So when school started this week, the retired Marine thought it would be helpful, and pretty cool for the kids, to put on his dress uniform and help the kids cross the busy street.  Other streets by the school have crossing guards but there just didn’t seem to be enough city funds for this street to also have a crossing guard.  So each weekday morning and afternoon, he downs his corporal’s dress blues and slips on his white gloves and hat.  The kids are just thrilled to have him there.  This video not only tells his story but also interviews him with a group of children.  What a humble man to give of his time this way.  I think it is also a great way to teach respect to the children who are honored to have him.  He says they love to ask questions about his service and especially like his medals.  We honor you, Cpl. Alston and not only thank you for your service then but now.  You are a hero to us.

Have a GREAT day…by making it a great day for someone else!!!
