CLAY COUNTY, Fla. -- A local man has made it his personal mission to serve dozens of homeless people, but he doesn't do it out of a soup kitchen. He makes personal deliveries to their home in the woods.
Steve White started feeding the homeless a year ago.
He said he stumbled upon the growing homeless population in Clay County while collecting blankets for them. That's when he was told any wooded area is likely occupied by people. He was shocked to learn the truth behind it.
"In this past year I learned nobody really knew we had a homeless problem," said White.
White serves roughly 30 homeless men and women twice a week. He also brings them anything else they may need, from clothing to medicine. He's even known to take them to the doctor's office.
"It's a full time job," he said.
He calls his generosity a blessing. He said he's blessed to have the time and money to help those in need. White added that he and his family have downsized their home and have cut back other costs to make it possible for him to do this.
