Alas, a break in the frigid cold lies!
More than 100 homeless people in Chicago were given a warm place to stay with fresh clothes and food as temperatures dived below zero thanks to Candice Payne, a 34-year-old real estate broker from the Windy City.
Payne came into national prominence earlier this week after she not only used her credit card to book 30 hotel rooms for homeless people amid record low temperatures in Chicago, but also organized a caravan of trucks and cars to provide them transportation and made them care packages.
Payne told The New York Times in an interview on Saturday that she made the decision to help in a “spur-of-the-moment.”
“It was 50 below, and I knew they were going to be sleeping on ice and I had to do something,” she continued.
