A Tampa banker and volunteer football coach was honored by city council this morning for his efforts to feed people without homes during the holiday season. But during a commendation ceremony at City Hall, Andre Kirwan asked that Neil Sayers, a local chiropractor and volunteer who passed away in November, also be recognized.

“He always told me, ‘Andre, we’ve got to go big or go home’ and it’s been hard for me to kind of wrap my brain around the fact that through his passing, his dream was realized. But, like I said, all the attention has been completely overwhelming and [I’m] very grateful to get the support, but I would be remiss in saying that this is an honor of him.”

Kirwan founded the “No Strings Attached” ministry to not only provide meals, but to also handout necessary items like clothing, blankets and toiletries.
