Heart 2 Hart Detroit feeds lunches to needy
by Mitch Albom
What makes a person want to give? Two years ago, Larry Oleinick decided to spend his lunch hour handing out food to the hungry.
“I drove down to Hart Plaza and I start sitting on the benches with the people, and they kind of looked at me like, ‘What’s this guy conversing with me?'” said Oleinick.
