Helping those in need is a wonderful thing. Rick is a 27yo homeless man living in an alley at the corner of Ashland and West Adams Street in Chicago’s Near West Side. He had all of his blankets, extra coats and hygiene belongings stolen earlier today and was showing signs of hypothermia in the -15 degree weather.
He was so excited to get a brand new sub-zero sleeping bag, new socks, food and hot warmers that he teared up and insisted on a strong hug. He also took tubes of antibiotic cream and Vaseline to help with the skin cracking from the cold.
