I met Dennis this afternoon, who wanted to keep his story private from our blog, but we agreed to share a little about his work. Dennis is from San Francisco, and upon receiving his Makeshift Traveler, he quickly unopened all of the awesome materials we included in each backpack.
Dennis was quick to be off to work, so our conversation was brief, but Dennis shared a little about his can and recycling source of income. Dennis has a cart with numerous bags filled with tons of cans and bottles to take to the recycling center in exchange for cash.
It is always great to support those who are unhoused and actively working toward earning an income. We are still in contact with Dennis, and if you would like to make a donation toward him, please click the button below and write a comment, “Dennis from Mission District.” We look forward to staying in touch with Dennis!
