LOS FELIZ, California- Seventy-seven year-old homeless man, Ed Denst, donated $250 to a Catholic charity. Denst collected money from strangers to donate to the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul Council of Los Angeles. He chose to not buy himself food, clothes or shelter. Instead when asked why he gave it away, he responded with “well, because I thought about giving back. (It) makes me feel very good.” Denst, an ex-Marine, became homeless after his wife died 23 years ago. He sold the house, spent all of the money and has been on the streets ever since. The charity he donated to offers him a warm meal at least once a day. Over the last two decades, he has learned that people are charitable, and he’s thankful for that and wanted to give back.
