George Hill feeds the homeless in Salt Lake City
Hill was taking a walk with his family around Salt Lake City on Monday night when he noticed a small group of homeless people with not much to their devices but a few blankets, dirty clothes, and unsure of the last meal they had.
The IUPUI alum came back the next day and bought some hot meals from Wendy’s, including cheeseburgers, fries, and a few bottled waters to give out to them.
He walked down to Rio Grande and passed out bags of fast food and mingled with them, enjoying some of their stories:
Impacting Lives is Something I Strive To Do Everyday. Whether Its A Smile, Hug, Conversation, Picture Or Simply Spreading The Love…. Well As I Was Walking Last Night With My Family In My New City (Salt Lake City). I Noticed A Large Group Of Men, Women And Even Children. But The Group I Noticed Maybe Had A Blanket, A Cart Filled With Things, Dirty Clothes, And Wasn't Sure When Their Last Meal Was… So Why Not Make That My One Good Deed Of The Day And Impact A Couple Lives. So Went To Wendys And Grabbed A Bunch Of Cheese Burgers, Fries Bought Some Bottled Waters And Walked Down Rio Grande Till We Reached A Park Up The Street And Passed Out Hot Meals And Mingled. Had A Great Time Listening To Some Of Their Stories… So I Challenge Everyone To Spread The Love And Do A Good Deed Once A Day. DM Me Some Of Your Good Deeds And I Will Start Posting Some Of Your Impactful Stories. Together We Can Spread The Love… #GoodDeeds #ImpactingLives #SpreadTheLove
While many athletes do contribute to kids and homeless, we seldom see the person-to-person interaction Hill took the time to give them.
There’s something that goes beyond the donation and the act of kindness, the bond of talking with them and trading stories is probably one that will forever stick with them and just as much as the burgers and water they enjoyed.
Needless to say, this act won’t be forgotten in the eyes of his new fans in Salt Lake City. A good start to a hopefully great season for the Indiana native.
