Triple PT holds Christmas for the homeless

MONROE, La. - (12/7/18) A non-profit organization, Triple PT or Poor People Pulling Together, gathered Friday on DeSiard Street for their annual Christmas for the Homeless.

The organization gives out coats, blankets, gloves backpacks and other essentials to those in need.

Founder and CEO, Gloria Fountain, says she was inspired to start the organization after one touching moment.

"I had a conversation with a homeless man back in 1997 that said when the winter comes and they be all cold, that they would pile up together and breathe on each other to keep each other warm. I knew I had to do something. I knew that couldn't be," she said.
