He has ran in over 50 marathons with all proceeds going to the homeless.

It doesn’t stop with blankets, he participates in foot washing and pedicures for the homeless, meals for the homeless, toiletries and grooming for the homeless as well.

This year Brian has already raised over $7,000 dollars he shares modestly. “There are over 80,000 homeless people in Los Angeles so $7,000 is a start.”

The 4th Annual Blanket drive helps Ferguson and Trinity Baptist Church increase there giving.

They need your help to give the gift of warmth. The Blanket Drive will take place Saturday Dec. 18 at 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.

They are requesting full, king or queen blankets.
