Summers in Southern California can get hot, but for the people on Skid Row, the heat can be excruciatingly painful, and even life-threatening. That’s why we go out every time the temperature is 85 degrees or more to hand out bottles of cold water to our neighbors on Skid Row. It’s amazing what something as seemingly small as giving a bottle of water on a hot day can do to someone who feels alone, exhausted, and unloved.
