  • I use to see it in Texas when we lived there. No I never gave then anything. Definitely not money. I wouldn't want them to go buy drugs, liquor or cigarettes. If I gave them anything, is a peace of paper with the closest soup kitchen on it

  • No, I've never seen anything like that here. In fact Unemployment numbers are down here. But on the off chance that I am in the city and do see someone homeless, I always make a point to help them where I can. We don't really have many shelters or kitchens in this area that I know of, because we don't have a large number of homeless. But I remember one night when I was coming out of the Opera House in the city, there was a woman and her baby sitting on the sidewalk... I couldn't do much, but I left her with my coat and earrings. I figured she could pawn them or something for what she needed... Once in a while if I see someone I will give them a sandwich or something - whatever I can. But it's very rare that I would see something like that.
