Homeless Big Tony needs a new truck.

Organized by: Tony Porten

Tony's Photo


Big "T" is homeless and until recently, lived in and used his pickup to gather and sell scrap metal. Unfortunately, his truck broke down and he is unable to afford repairs.  Add to this, his truck was full sized and he was barely affording gas. We met Big T while serving breakfast on the streets to our homeless community in Norfolk, VA. In the last two years, we have come to know Big T as a gregarious and positive shining light in his homeless community. Our group would like to get him into a fully paid for used and more economical pickup. Our goal is to also cover his insurance for a year and provide a gas card that will get him as many miles as we can give him. Since losing his truck and livelihood, Big T has acquired and had stolen, two bicycles which he used to collect recyclables. Please help us with our goal of getting Big T back on four wheels and serving once again as a productive member of his community.
