Sierra Roots is actively assisting our homeless folks to find jobs, to provide transportation to doctors’ appointments, or job interviews. A few days ago, we posted this message on our Facebook page, as well as on the Nevada County Peeps Facebook site:
“We have a homeless man that Sierra Roots, is working with to help get him back on his feet. He is looking for a men’s bike to use to get to work. He has no means of transportation, but is serious about finding work. With some help from Sierra Roots and our citizens, we can make this a reality. He just delivered 20 of his resumes in Grass Valley and Nevada City – walking. Sierra Roots would like to find a men’s bicycle for him, so that he’ll have some transportation. Please let us know if you can help. Anyone with a man’s bike out there to help transform a life?”
Within 24 hours, Tamara Hiatt responded that she had a bike to give. She delivered it to our Sierra Roots Board Vice President Pauli Halstead, who washed it up, filled the tires, and is going to deliver it to our young man today.
Thank you Tamara for your generous heart, and for being part of this compassionate and kind community.
