My goal is the same as it has been. My entire life, I've worked hard and have been self sufficient. I am a disabled American Navy Veteran and I am fundraising for food, clothing and schoolbooks.
My name is David and I was born and raised in SF. When I was knee high to a grass hopper. I lost my job as a machinist - working for the Bethlehem Steel Corp/Triple A Shipyard Westwinds/BAE Systems at Pier 70. I've worked on navy ships, oil tankers, cargo ships, and coast guard cutter.
My father was a Navy veteran on a ship in World War 2. His ship was bombed but he survived. My parents threw me out when I was a teenager and I lived on the streets. I am also a navy veteran like my father.
I had a serious accident and broke both of my legs. I ended up in the SF General Hospital ICV 21 years ago for four months. I have difficulties walking and stayed at every shelter in this city. I am now housed but have difficulty affording basics such as food and clothing.
My goal is to have decent food (nutritional food). I had experienced homelessness for 11 years. I also have high blood pressure and diabetes.
I love music and have been that way since I was a little boy. I eventually may need a motorized wheelchair due to my walking difficulty, but I am keeping positive.
I'm raising money for basic needs so I can be prepared employment.
