Kevin Sutton is at it again.  Inspired by the thousands of homeless children, women and men in Central Florida,  he passionately believes 'No one  should suffer from Hunger.'  As Director of Boot Camp for Dads, (a program of Healthy Start Coalition of Orange County,) he see's first hand the importance of Fatherhood in every childs life.  Partnered up this year with the Coalition for the Homeless , a program to feed and house children, women and men, one of few organizations that help single fathers in need, and making dads more involved and supportive. 80% of runaways, dropouts and children with behavior problems come from Fatherless Homes. We ask for your help to raise awareness for this issue. You can either donate food, toiletries, toys or funds to help us in this endeavor. By using Go Fund Me, we can reach so many more people. I want to thank you all for all of your donations and each donation will go directly to this project

When Sutton's not camping out, he runs a Fatherhood program (Boot Camp for Dads) and hosts a daily radio show for ESPN 580 Orlando. Last year, he camped out at the Best Buy/Florida Mall for 33 days. This year he's doing the same to continue shining the light on the homelessness problem in our community.

Everyday Hero: Raising awareness for the Central Florida homeless

It’s hard to miss the tent that’s pitched in front of the Best Buy near Florida Mall, but for 24 hours a day, seven days a week for several weeks, it’s what Kevin Sutton has called home.
Sutton is on a mission to let people know about the plight of the homeless.
“I’m telling my friends that if you know me, come out and feed me,” Sutton said. “I’m not going to eat unless you bring it.”
Sutton’s “Campout for a Cause” is a chance to spread the word that he’s collecting canned goods, drinks, juice — not only for himself — to benefit the homeless in the area. He’s spent almost a month sleeping on concrete and talking about the estimated 13,000 homeless children in Central Florida.
“People just started coming, but this time, it was different,” Sutton said. “People weren’t coming just to see me. They were coming to bring something not only for me, but they were bringing something for someone else.”
Sutton said the campaign is working. In 15 days last year, Sutton brought in three tons of food, which was donated to Catholic Charities. This year, proceeds will go to The Love Pantry, which is in partnership with Orange County Public Schools.
“For kids that get free lunch, they’re covered Monday through Friday for breakfast and lunch,” Sutton said. “The question is what happens when they go home at night and on the weekend? Where do those meals come from? The Love Pantry actually fills that gap, especially during the holidays.”
Sutton is also the director of “Boot Camp for Dads,” which is a program that aims to help men be confident and committed to their role as a father. It’s a role that Sutton takes seriously.
“I only wish that when my daughter gets old and I’m long gone, she remembers that her dad stood up for something and helped others in their time of need,” he said.
Kevin Sutton will be outside of the Best Buy near Florida Mall through Black Friday, setting a personal record of 33 days on the street.

You’ve heard correct, Kevin has officially broken the 22 day Black Friday Campout record.
He has collected over 2,500 cans of food, 12 boxes of clothing/toiletries and a few toys. He needs your help to reach 6,000 cans of food for homeless children in Central Florida. We are also raising funds for the non-profit.
You can also stop by anytime between today and Black Friday to make donations!
Thank you for all your help!
