(WWBT) - A local coach says he knows what it's like to need help and not get it and to be scoffed at by others.
When he saw a homeless person holding a sign asking for help, he felt compelled to stop and initiate a conversation.
The coach then began handing out Blessing Bags with restaurant gift cards and sock. That was the start of an outreach effort that has inspired hundreds of others.
Now, three friends are honoring the coach's generosity and sharing how "Moments of Hope Community Outreach" is making a difference.
