Those In Need Don’t Always Ask For Money

Someone said, “all the homeless do is ask for money. And when you don’t give them the exact amount that they ask for, they’ll get mad at you.” Well, that statement is definitely false. Certainly this wasn’t the case for the homeless brother we met on the street.
On March 9, 2019, the LEMM team went out on another venture.
