He Turned Despair into Hope
They built a lead-lined bunker in their basement that could house 100 people. It is stocked with over 60 barrels of non-perishable food.
After losing his home to foreclosure, he didn’t want to see all the food in the barrels go to waste so he donated it to a food drive for the disaster in Puerto Rico.
“These people are dying. They have nothing,” Badame said.
Badame is donating them to Victoria Martinez-Barber and her husband Anthony, who run a local food truck.
Tori plans to send the food to her family and townspeople in Arecibo, Puerto Rico where they are flooded out, homeless and without food.
The barrels each weigh about 300 pounds and are packed with items like rice, beans, non-fat milk, dry eggs, Vienna sausages, and flour. Just one barrel has enough food in it to feed 84 people for four months.
For Joe, the supplies have always been about survival. He just didn’t know, until now, just who he would be saving.
