[NEWS] A clean break: Putting her own struggles aside to help others

 

Wash Water Wednesday was scheduled to start at 11, but the homeless started arriving by 8 a.m.

"Feels amazing," the first woman out of the shower, in her new clothes, hair swept up in a fresh towel, told Crystal Brown, the organizer.

"We wash up every day, but it's not the same thing," she said. "Also, it's great to know somebody cares."

Water flowed again - tears.

The second woman out of the shower, Stephanie Wilcox, 49, in new green flip-flops with sequins, actually broke into song, right there in the parking lot of the SHARE Food Program, at 29th and Hunting Park Avenue.
