The Realtor ® Association of Southern Kentucky, Inc. is doing their part to help the homeless.
Some realtors have been camping out next to South Central Bank on Campbell Lane in Bowling Green since Friday morning, sleeping in tents and boxes to emphasize how the homeless live.
They're also collecting cash, food pantry items like canned goods, blankets and pillows, and hygiene products like toothpaste and baby-wipes for the homeless.
It's all part of their "Hope for Homeless event, which benefits the charity, Hotel Inc.
They say more than 22,000 people in Warren County live in poverty.
"A lot of people feel like they have to wait until Thanksgiving or so on to give to the homeless people and think, that's really when they need food. People need food year round and this is why we really looked at doing this event," says Bobby Hunton, a realtor and chairman of the Hope for Homeless event.
"We're in the business to sell homes but the homeless don't have a choice and we're trying to give them a choice, we are trying to help them," says Steve Davis, the President of The Realtor ® Association of Southern Kentucky, Inc.
On Sunday, they collected nearly 2000 dollars in cash and more than two thousand items.
They're camping out and will be collecting goods until 9 am Monday morning.
