Please Help Larry Have A Warm Place To Sleep

Larry is a Gentleman experiencing homelessness .
Larry and his dog Lebowski are often seen on Robert St and surrounding areas. If you have ever had the pleasure of talking to Larry you are quickly won over by his warm smile and grateful soul.  We are working to get Larry  and Lebowski a warm place to sleep for the winter. He is also in need of many things for himself and Lebowski. 
Because of the dog, he is unable to go to shelters. The police have offered to take Lebowski  for him so that he can go. He will not go for fear of losing Lebowski. He truly loves that dog.
Larry is able to rent a friend's garage for the winter. He has to pay $50 a month and $25 for gas for heat. He said it's hard getting cash. People often give him care packages, and he really appreciates them. However, he needs money for shelter and bedding. He said he believes people think he is just going to use the money for drugs. He has been clean for 14 years. However "I love the occasional beer" he laughed.

Imagine what we can do as a community to help them!
Minnesota is not a state to be homeless in. It's a miserable life in the winter. 
Let's get Larry and Lebowski off the streets this winter!
Thank You !
