I take a trip around Manhattan on a cold January night with a group of volunteers at the Coalition for the Homeless. They distribute food to the people living on streets. I learn more about what drives these volunteers to help homeless people and they share with me what every homeless person actually needs.
1) What drives the volunteers
2) Stories about the homeless
3) Misconceptions about the homeless
4) Message for the listeners
