9-Year-Old Girl Builds Shelters For The Homeless And Grows Food For Them, Too
Article source: The Open Mind
A nine-year-old builds houses from scratch and they aren’t the kind for dolls.
When Hailey Fort was just five-years-old, it broke her heart to see a homeless man on the street. After asking her parents how she could help him, she’s been assisting the homeless by providing food and housing ever since.
At the age of six, Hailey began growing vegetables to donate to the local food bank; last year she grew carrots, peppers, peas, beans, tomatoes, berries, cucumbers, and melons, and donated an impressive 128 pounds worth of fruit and veg.
But now Hailey has decided to step her already impressive efforts up a gear, by building mobile shelters from scratch. She plans to build 12 mobile shelters this year.
The recipient of the first shelter, Hailey’s mom Miranda Fort told ABC News, is a man named Edward.”She [Hailey] went through all of her homeless friends and made the decision based on a number of things. This shelter doesn’t have a place for a wheelchair, so it wasn’t a good fit for Billy Ray. Similarly, it wasn’t a good fit for her friend Tonka, a dog, and his owner. Edward stuck out because he has always been so gracious when receiving food.”
