Jesse

Washington, DC

I pass Jesse every day on my commute into the city from work. He sits on the off ramp off of Route 66 onto Constitution Ave. When I gave him a Givr bag, he told me he had been at the intersection for 28 years, and had been extremely blessed by the people he sees on that corner.

Oct 4, homeless. Just got out of jail, on parole (had the ankle bracelet thing). He walked into a church meeting. A friend Ryan and I talked with him and tried to help him out. Gave the Givr package, shared the gospel with him, gave him some food and a handout of places he can go for food and shelter. He's from the SW DC area, tried to go home but wasn't able to (I forgot why). which left him homeless.

Bink

in

Unknown

Walking to barracks Bible study and he approached me asking for help. I chatted and prayed for him, but had nothing to give him at the moment. I told him to meet me at the same spot 2 hours later. And we did! I gave him a Givr package and drove him to FiveGuys for some food. We chatted, I got to share the gospel with him. He's religious but not a Christian and doesn't know Jesus. I gave him my number and we'll be in contact. He may come to church some time soon. He's homeless right now, but very motivated to get back on his feet financially. He's from the DC area, and older fellow. He said he boxed (boxing, the sport) for 40ish years. Nickname is Bink. Most of his family has passed away or were killed. Ver nice guy, cleaned up because he's been able to wash up at friend's places.

Lavey

Unknown

Lavey looked to be about 16 or 17 years old. He was asking people who were passing by to give him money in order to get together enough ($40) to spend the night in a hotel. I didn't have any cash but gave him a Givr package and some food.

Timothy

30 something male at corner of Old Georgetown and Rockville Pike with homeless sign going car to car. SUCH a smile when he received his GIVR package. He said "God bless you, you are doing a good deed, Thank you"... what more could warm your heart

Agula

Washington, DC

walked to Post Office, picked up my box of Givr packages, on the walk back Agula approached asking for money. I didn't have money but had the Givr packages so I gave her one, on Pennsylvania Ave

Tom

in

Falls Church, VA

Tom was standing in the median when I was stopped at a light in the Sevem Corners area. In the short conversation we had, he told methat he had an on-the-job accident and was waiting an imminent settlement; he actually lifted up his shirt to reveal a huge scar running down his torso. Despite this adversity, he had a cheery disposition and seemed to be in good spirits. He was very grateful to receive the Givr package.

Curtis

in

Austin, TX

I met Curtis in the summer of 2019 in Austin, TX while doing the Givr beta test. He teased me for trying to give him a bag with suncreen, as he we was black. He enjoys reading a lot so we discussed books/authors for a bit. I;m thankful that Givr helped me meet Curtis!

Mike is from NC. He had such an infectious joy and smile, and he wishes more drivers in Falls church would acknowledge him like they did in NC. Mile was in the military and is looking for work.

Jimmy

in

Bethesda, MD

Jimmy is a joy-filled man, a military veteran that spends most his days in Bethesda sitting in a wheelchair at the entrance of a parking garage. He loves meeting people that pass by, and enjoys talking about his faith and The Bible. I gave a purple givr pack to him and he loved it! He said he needed a sack for some of his personal items, and this was perfect! Please say Hi to him, you should find yourself in Bethesda near the Sweetgreen. God bless!

Craig

in

Craig was under the bridge at the 11th exit off 395. I handed him the bag, and he was very happy, saying that now he could always look at the bag and know it was me who gave it to him. I said “God Bless,” and he looked up to the sky in agreement.
