Water for the Homeless!

$3,935 of $1,000 goal

Raised by 146 people in 42 months
Yesterday and today we broke the Idaho State records for heat.  It was 110 degrees today.   As far ahead as I can see, we will be in the triple digits.

We have a lot of homeless here in Boise.  Areas of comfort are few and far between during the day, as the shelters do not house the homeless during these hot days.

I spent the last two days handing out iced waters and apples.  Needing water bottles, apples and ice has added up.  Sadly, a lot of the homeless do not have teeth and apples are not an option.  I need to find a softer item for these people, to provide something to eat during the day.

My hope is that each day, during these triple digit days, I can get out and provide waters and food for those who need it most.

The fees add up quickly and today I ran out of waters/ice after about 5 hours of helping out.   

My promise to you is that EVERY penny donated will go to helping the homeless.  I'll get out daily and share your donations in the form of waters, ice and food.

Thank you in advance for your generosity.  It's going to a good cause.

Blessings to you all...  Kevin

It's Thursday and I'm out here talking with some of the finest citizens in our town. Meet Scott and Christian. I've known them about two weeks now, and they have become good friends. They trust me enough, that they allowed me to Pay the child support for his three children.take a picture of them today. Christian on the right, is a veteran who is on disability. The money that he receives on disability, goes to Pay the child support for his three children. Scott, on the left, asked me today if I know of any odd jobs for him. He is a handyman and can do a multitude of things, to include painting and trimwork. If you know of some odd jobs for Scott, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. You can message me or call me at 208-901-5812. Thank you and have an awesome day!

Warmer than expected today. Spent time out there today, unexpectedly. Left work a little early to help out. Ended up talking with Renegade Phil for about two hours today. He was feeling chatty. Phil is the guy who hangs out next to Five Guys in BODO. He loves to talk . Say hello sometime. Back at it Saturday and Sunday!

What about sliced up watermelon? Easier to chew than apples and its 90% water.
