A message from a father and son who went out on the MJRH van
Last night was great! What an eye-opening experience. The night ended early as we gave out all the food/coffee by 9ish. Regardless, we met many people, had some great conversations and were all feeling very good about giving back to the community. Speaking for my son and myself, we both met and talked to several memorable people, some of which might make it into my son’s recount of his portion.
For me personally, we stopped on Richmond Street, just east of Yonge Street. There was a blue tarp and Lauren got out and took some food and a coffee to the person under the tarp. My wife and I have driven downtown for years and I’ve seen the tarp. While I was pretty sure there was someone under it, I pushed it out of my mind. This experience brought it to the forefront and I will not pass by again thinking about the people and without trying to help. I was also pleasantly surprised by the politeness and thankfulness of the people we met. As I said, it was a great evening and experience.
My son and I have already talked about going out again.
Thank you for this great opportunity.
