Riverside Fire Dept gives shoes to homeless man

A fire truck from Engine 6-C was returning from a training exercise in Riverside, California Thursday when the crew aboard noticed an elderly homeless man walking very slowly without shoes on the side of a freeway overpass.

The firefighters pulled the truck over because one of them, Dave Gilstrap, wanted to give him a pair of tennis shoes he had in the truck. Captain Rob Gabler jumped out and helped the man put on the shoes and gave him some water.

“Just another great example of the City of Riverside Fire Department helping our members of the community,” the department wrote on their Facebook page.

Gabler’s wife, Connie Fox Gabler commented on the post, saying, “SO in love with that man of mine.”
