Elderly man needs vehicle
Organized by: garry blackburn
I ran across Mr. Russell about a week ago. I had noticed him hitchhiking really early every morning dressed nicely, well his clothes were very dated but nice none the less. I never pick up hitch hikers but I felt bad for him so I did. He had me drop him off at a nearby church and I did this everyday for about a week before telling me his story. His wife has terminal cancer and he has to wait on her basically hand and foot. Every morning a nearby restaurant will throw out their food that is out of date. This is the only time he can leave his wife because after she takes her morning meds, She naps for a little stretch he says. His SS check isn't enough to afford a car and the food from this restaurant helps them quite a bit so he can't turn it down. I asked him to go to the church and they would probably help but he's too proud. Of like to raise enough money to be able to get them a vehice so they could be more self sufficient and he wouldn't have to walk in the hear everyday for food. God Bless you all!!!
