Never. I don't do anything for the homeless. I just ignore them.

yes, several times.....and or given them gift cards for food places like subway that are healthy and relatively affordable.......

I used to also offer food and a card with the # of a local shelter/food bank that will help anytime anyone....

I have tried. Many times. This is when I learned they wanted money to feed their addiction(s).

Not one would accept the food offer. I even offered to give them a ride to the grocery store and pay for their groceries. Again, not one acceptor.

I offered to take them to a restaurant and buy them a hot meal of their choice. Again, not takers.

They ALL wouldn't accept anything but cash.

I now donate to charities who clothe, feed and shelter the homeless.
