Was with group of homeless people right off 6th street in downtown Austin. Was working on a crossword so we tried to help with a few clues. He was very good at the crossword

Some of the homeless people in our town sleep near the courthouse but get kicked out of there in the morning and I saw him wandering around nearby. Asked if he would like a care package to achie responded. Yes, and mentioned that he was waiting for his friend. So could he have another? Of course I said yes but I did not find out his friend's name.

He was walking around downtown where some homeless folks go. I asked if he'd like a care package, to which he said yes. I explained what was in it and wished him a Merry Christmas and he smiled and said" Thanks, same to you"
I met Rick as I was walking to my car. He was sitting on a bench, headphones in, as I walked up to him. He later told me he often listens to gospel music or radio sermons. I asked if he'd like a Givr package and he said, "Well purple's my favorite color so that's a good start!" He was very thankful to receive it. He was in the same spot the next day, and we had a long and awesome conversation about our mutual faith in Jesus. He always has with him this nice purple bible, and I learned that he often ministers to others who are also homeless. I'm grateful to Givr for providing a vehicle through which we can more easily form these relationships.
