“I saw you looking through some of the trash over there, are you trying to get something to eat? Are you hungry or anything?”

“Yeah I’m hungry, but no I just walk through there because, I just look around,” she said.

“Ok, can I get you a sandwich or would you like something to drink?”

“Sure,” she pleasantly said.

Even while likely very hungry, the homeless woman so polite and such a sweetheart. When asked, she said she likes turkey sandwiches and Dr. Pepper.

Walking into Subway, got her a turkey sandwich and a $30 gift card, so that the next time she’s hungry she could go get a sandwich instead of looking for spoiled food in the trash.

“I got you a turkey sandwich, this came with some chips too.”

“Wow!” she said.

She then asked if I would like one of her bracelets, of which she only had two. While having so little, her generosity moved my heart.

“Thank you so much.”

“and actually I got you a gift card too, so there’s $30 bucks on here, so the next time you’re hungry, you just go grab a sandwich ok?”

She sweetly said thank you and we talked for a bit longer.
