In the article, “Helping the Hungry” (Upfront) I learned that Henry Sowells wanted to help homeless people when the Covid-19 hit. He started woodworking, he started using his skills to create benches, chopping boards, and coffee tables, donating the profits to a local charity. So far, he’s made about 170 producers and raised more than $7,000. He mentioned that, “During the pandemic we had no school. So I decided to help Bethers Cares, our local shelter.” He also mentioned that meeting new people was amazing, and seeing others how much effort they put into this gives me more strength to continue doing this.
I think what Henry is doing is amazing because he is helping others that they need more than he does, but also it gives him the opportunity to open more doors for him and continue helping more people. Is amazing the way that he has been trying to help people during this pandemic, even though we all have a difficult time, but he speeds the time helping others that also need help.
