L.A. Clippers & Chris Paul bless Salvation Army in Compton, CA

Here at The Salvation Army, we love a do-gooder! One of our favorites is Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers. Paul’s family foundation is responsible for a lot of good around Los Angeles as is the very generous team he plays for. Last Friday we got to see what the Chris Paul Family Foundation and Denise Booth’s crew from the L.A. Clippers Foundation did to create an environment for learning and play at The Salvation Army in Compton, California.

That homeless lady and dog in the nearby alley need your help. Here’s how.

Have you ever wondered where a homeless job searcher would keep their pet while looking for work? Showing up for an interview with a dog on a leash or a birdcage in hand probably doesn’t make a good first-impression. And for those who live in their car, leaving a pet inside is a major no no in many climates.

He’s riding 3,000 miles across the United States to raise awareness about the problem of hunger in this country and raise money all along his route.

“It’s not because I am good, it’s because Jesus is doing His work through the Holy Spirit. People notice that,” said Captain Cortez.
