young man gives hug food to homeless-KTVUvideo

He was homeless at the age of 16, but Rashawn Higgs has turned his life around.

On his 25th birthday, November 18, he loaded up a truck with $300 worth of clothing and coats from thrift stores, and packed dozens of bagged lunches– all on a mission to give back to the community he loves.

From the San Francisco area, Rashawn set up a Facebook page, called “Let’s help the world.”
