Last night I was waiting at Popeyes near Ponce De Leon Ave in Atlanta GA. I noticed a homeless man at first I only thought he wanted money, however, I decided to ask him did he want food while I was picking up my door-dash order. The manager at Popeyes proceeded to tell me I could not buy him food. I asked if I could just buy myself food, and the answer was no due to her believing I was going to give it to him. I was denied service.

The manager at Popeyes proceeded to call the cops on me and the homeless man. Jazz the homeless man began to tell me how he sells drawings for a living and how he just wanted a meal also he informed me how he accidentally broke his tent.

I want to help get him off the streets and buy him a new tent and socks etc. All of the proceeds will go towards him and I’m currently looking for any programs in Atlanta Georgia that could help him out in his situation.
Also, please contact me if you have any resources that could help!

Since the news article was published other families who are experiencing homelessness have reached out to me. I am starting a separate Gofundme for other families in need.

Thanks so much for anything that you can’t give God bless!
