When touring the Sunset Strip and other famous Hollywood locations, in addition to pleasant city landmarks, you’ll encounter these sad sights. If you want to help, consider donating money and/or volunteer time to the Red Cross, Salvation Army and other organizations that provide aid for the homeless.
Along with shoppers, tourists, families, pets and strollers, I encounter others on my daily wanderings through West Hollwyood. Along the sidewalks, just a few city blocks from the glamorous Sunset Strip and posh Beverly Hills, there are the wanderers. Carrying everything they own, they stop to rest and hope kindhearted passers-by will offer cash.
Of course, the money may be used to buy booze and drugs. But maybe some will provide meals or a safe place to spend the night.
