MILWAUKEE — Inside Homer Blow’s garage, you won't find a car stored inside, instead, you’ll find mounds of bakery items from bread, to doughnuts, anything to satisfy a sweet tooth from a person with a kind heart.

“I know our community needs these things and sometimes people are too prideful to ask so I just set it out and say if you need something come get it,” said Homer.

Homer started his nonprofit organization the Homer Blow Foundation Inc., earlier last year.

However; the pandemic put a wrench in his plans, but Homer didn’t let that stop him from giving back.

“Everybody is hurting, so I said you know what, it's not going to stop me from doing good, I said well until we can find other locations we are going to set this up right here in the garage and let people come and get what they need,” said Homer.

Homer picks up the donated bakery items from Sara Lee Entenmann's and brings them back to his garage.

On Fridays, anyone can stop by and take what they need. Homer’s said it's his goal to make sure everybody who stops by feels supported and loved. He said you don’t need a lot, to make a difference.

“Learn to love, even if it's from a distance, learn to love and learn to let it be genuine,” said Homer.

All the leftover items are donated to Repairers of the Breach.

Homer’s Bakery is open on Fridays from 9 to 11 a.m.
