THE STORY:

My Name is Anthony L. Stansbury and I started out this mission several months ago with a good friend and colleague Claudette Petrus. I just wanted to teach my children about what it meant to be homeless and how you can end up that way, as well as bring awareness to the community about the city's homeless. Since then a few friends my children and some local members of a church have helped contribute, prepare and distribute food, clothing, basic needs and even over the counter medicine to the homeless and in need out of our own pockets. The more time we spend out in the streets the more we see a need that is not being fulfilled and we can only do so much on our own.

We are only able to get enough goods to provide for the homeless on a bi-weekly basis, however we would like to go out every week and help because the need is great. As a contributor anything you give will be appreciated by us and the community we look to help, after all it only cost about $5.00 to provide a healthy meal for approximately 10 people that have absolutely nothing to eat. Each weekend we have help over 50 people with clothing, food or personal items and run out of goods every time.

Every penny raised will be used on efforts to help the homeless and those in need, we are looking to expand the range of services we provide to haircuts so they can be presentable to employers; many of our homeless brothers and sisters are very intelligent I have learned by spending time with them and all they need is to "look the part" to get the opportunity. We would also like to provide monthly bus passes to the elderly, those with children and people who have jobs they need to get to. I have found that some of the homeless people I talked to lost their transportation and that is how they became homeless.

Finally I would like to say thank you for those who are contributing to this very worthy cause, but if you are reading this campaign and are not able to give any money that doesn't mean you cant help. Please spread the word of this campaign to others in your area and if you live in Tampa Florida and would like to give your time to help please contact me we would love to have some help on the front lines.
