“He said, ‘I have a broken collarbone, I have broken ribs, I’ve been beaten up,’” Katy recalled. “He needed somebody to step in and help him. That’s what I did.”
Katy decided to turn to social media to help Pops get back on his feet. She set up a YouCaring page to raise money and asked people on Facebook to donate clothing and other items that he needed.
“Pops needs our help to show him that this world is still full of good people!” she wrote.
Soon, donations and offers to help began pouring in. More than $8,600 has already been raised for Pops’ medical costs and he has also received a hot bath, a nice haircut, and several hot meals.
“He was very nice and a soft-spoken gentleman,” said hairstylist Pamela Denson, who cut Pops’ hair. “He said all he did was pray. The only way he knew how to ask for help was to pray.”
Katy said she hopes to raise enough money to find some housing for Pops so he can start a new life.
“We have to help each other and helping each other helps all of us,” she said.
We all have a little good inside us. So share it!
