Miracles do happen

A homeless child was stopping by outside our gated laundry room. Our resident manager explained to him to he can't hang around here. He's not to much more than 11. Today was his lucky day. As I was coming home, I noticed him and a Home Depot truck. The driver explained, he is authorized to help bring homeless to shelter, as I was passing, in ear shot. Driver says, tomorrow huge turkey meal. Silence. I was opening my door, as I watched the Home Depot truck drive off with the child in the back. This child got his miracle today.

That doesn't sound right, I hope that you report this to the authorities.

I think many of us find this questionable. I hope it is not what we fear but is a genuine miracle.

It is, a church near by and a Pastor I live by, say Office Depot is authorized to help.

I fully agree with @Courtlynn, how can be sure the truck driver was not doing something wrong?

Well, the driver asked, showed a card on so I believe it's safe.

@oahuwriter As it was difficult to show a card in our days, you print it at home with your computer. I would have reported and I see that most users are with me on this.

Some companies are authorized to help. There's even a unit to help suck homeless locally.
