To the editor:
Help! Isn’t it just so sad that the homeless people sleep on the sides of buildings are just trying to keep warm. One day my mom and I saw a man walking with trash bag and regular bags with tons of stuff in them, and it was really cold outside that day.


What can we do to help the homeless people find homes? We could volunteer to help, or we could advocate or contribute for the homeless people. We could actually do all kinds of things to help the homeless people.


Did you know that 10 states have the most homeless people: Alaska, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Rhode Island, Washington state and Washington, D.C.? Did you know when children go to school they often go to school without proper clothing and supplies?


What can we do to stop homelessness? We can donate some clothes or blankets or other stuff like toys for the kids and blankets and pillows for the entire family, and we could also donate anything like food.


Did you know 2.3 million to 3.5 million people are homeless. Whatever you do please try to stop homelessness now. What did people ever do to you, so do not treat the people like that.
