In today's world things are wasted and thrown away by people who have more than enough while others go without. We throw away food while others are starving. Many things that people need or can use end up as landfill. A man named Gregory Kloehn is an artist who has found a unique way to recycle and help the needy. Gregory has been Turning Trash Into Homes for homeless people.
These recycled homes provide safe, dry places for people to sleep when they have nowhere else to go. These mobile shelters are made from material that the artist finds in dumpsters. A very kind act that gives people a roof over their heads. Volunteers and youth from a local high school also help Gregory to build these homes.
In 2013 The Annual Homelessness Assessment Report showed that the largest homeless population in America is in Southern California. (source) There are many people in need of shelter. You don't need to be rich in order to help, all you need is a little bit of ingenuity. Gregory is from Oakland in California and if you would like to find out how you can help with this project click 'Check It Out' below.
