Everyone matters! A while back we told you about Gary Pickering: formerly#homeless, Gary began constructing pod-like shelters to help people down on their luck escape the elements and regain a little dignity. Inspired by Gary’s idea, Florida resident Bruce Hicks has created a similar shelter.
Bruce owns Food Truck Heaven, a business where he converts old bread trucks into food service vehicles. Bruce created a aluminum shelter that includes a portable toilet, a bed, storage and a place to cook outside. The total cost — around $500.
“How can we not have compassion for somebody out on the street?” Bruce says, “What’s better than eating, sleeping and washing yourself and feeling safe? When the door closes, they are able to sit there without the other [outside] pressures.”
Bruce plans to take the pods to local shelters to see if they would be interested in investing in some.
Thank you Bruce for keeping dignity alive for those less fortunate. Everyone Mattershttps://www.facebook.com/everyonematters?ref=stream&directed_target_id=0
