The People With Less Are Always the Ones Who Give the Most
"His name is Julio Melendez and he is located by the Castaway Trailer Park in Marathon, FL. (Keys Mile 46). He is one of the victims, like many others, who lost everything due to the impacts of Hurricane Irma and is living in his truck. He has an enormous heart and hasn't stopped helping those around him that like he says 'are in a worse situation than him'. He has been using his truck to pick up ice and water and delivering it to all the victims stranded without transportation.
When asked what he was going to do with the air mattress that was just donated to him (the one he is holding) he responded: 'I'm going to donate it to someone who needs it more than me'.
We have made two trips to Marathon and both days he has been doing his altruistic labor. Before this tragedy Julio worked in landscaping. If anyone knows of a job for him, let's help him out!! I am not sure if he lost his equipment too during the hurricane. This silent hero needs a home."
