Atlanta Man Creates Portable Handwashing Stations for Homeless to Fight Coronavirus
… wash your hands or go to the bathroom,” Lester said to Shoppe Black. “I wanted to make sure we put stations in parts where people are under bridges, just in case someone wants to stop and wash their hands.”
It started when Lester got on the phone and started contacting RV manufactures, who could use technology that helps build portable hand-washing stations. Not before long, 15 portable machines have been donated to the group with each holding between 5 and 10 gallons of water. The organization will be placing them all over the cities in communities that need it most.
“I started wondering how homeless people would keep their hands cleans, it’s already difficult,” Lester said. “The reality is some people are going to live on the streets and be on the streets.”
