WMNF Drive-Time News Thursday | Listen to this entire show:
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.
â€œHe always told me, â€˜Andre, weâ€™ve got to go big or go homeâ€™ and itâ€™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 [Iâ€™m] very grateful to get the support, but I would be remiss in saying that this is an honor of him.â€
Kirwan founded the â€œNo Strings Attachedâ€ ministry to not only provide meals, but to also handout necessary items like clothing, blankets and toiletries.
