Sam* was homeless and hopeless till he met a StandUp volunteer. That changed his life!
Here’s what he told me:
“I was on the streets with no hope and then I met a volunteer for StandUp For Kids. She became my friend.
StandUp has helped me through so many dark days. You were there when I had no one and nothing. When I was hungry, you went out of your way to feed me. When all I had was the clothes on my back, you helped me.
Today I can say I am a recovering addict. And each day I wake up and thank God for the love and hope I received through you.
I am proud of who I am today. That’s only because you have never given up on me.”
Because of you and your support of StandUp, Sam is smiling today. Thank you.
