The quiet Willie Anderson is a man of few words. But the little he did say praised the GBM and the help they’ve given him.
“I was homeless because I couldn’t find work. I just got a place of my own, but I still need some help,” Willie said. “I’ve been coming here off and on for about twenty years now. I remember when they were in a little bitty building down the road.”
GBM helps Willie with food and clothes, for which he is grateful. “They’re all great who work here,” said Willie, nodding his head. “What I know is that they’re great and they help you in a lot of ways.”
