Spokane man ‘Giving Backpacks’ to help homeless community

SPOKANE, Wash. — A Spokane man has set out to help the homeless in the community, one backpack at a time.

Rick Clark created “Giving Backpacks” and has been filling and handing them out to the homeless for two years now.

“You don’t know what just a handshake is going to do or even a hug,” Clark said. “You don’t have to give somebody money you can just spend five minutes talking to them.”

Clark is able to give out backpacks with the help of donations from the community. In total, he has stuffed and handed out 1,100 backpacks.
