“Dear PoPville,

Understandably, we can be weary of strangers coming to our doors soliciting services. I wanted to share a positive experience to encourage you all to support a community member.

I live on 3rd st NW. For context, I live in a row house with a few roommates and out front yard isn’t very well kept. Last week a middle age African American man came up to the house around 5pm and offered to clean up the front yard and side walk. He said his name is Malik and that he is homeless and needed money for an appointment. He said he could do it right then, it would take him an hour and that he would charge $20 cash. I accepted his offer and went to get the cash from an ATM.

Malik did a great job cleaning my front yard. (more…)
