Good Samaritan Patrol Looks for Homeless People on the Streets
Because of mental illness and drug addictions, many homeless folks make poor decisions during the cold weather, often not knowing about freezing temps that may be only hours away. Wayside's Good Samaritan Patrol attempts to prevent tragedy from happening by offering rides to the Mission, blankets, a cup of hot coffee, or a sack meal. Most elect to endure the cold and 911 calls are always made if children are involved. We appreciate these men and women who volunteer to give up a night each week to be real lifesavers combing the streets and camps of the community.
During COVID-19 the patrol has been limited, but Bill Leavell and his crew of helpers have taken the challenge each Monday. Thanks for saving lives!
