In the words of booth, he hoped to find some food, which often leave volunteers, but instead found a brown paper bag from the supermarket Fred Meyer.

When Kevin opened the package, it was a real shock.

“I almost lost consciousness. I never touched so much money and I don’t think ever again will feel,” says Kevin.

“Then I thought to get out or stay?”
