A Homeless Guy's Trailer Burned Down in a Parking Lot . . . So the Manager of a Store Gave Him His Own Trailer


There's a homeless guy in Traverse City, Michigan named William Berkshire, but locals know him as "Mountain Man."  And on Sunday, he lost the trailer he'd been living in to a fire, along with almost everything he owned.
 
When it happened, the trailer was sitting in the parking lot of a place called Roy's General Store, which is managed by a guy named Rob Hentschel.
 
And when Rob heard what happened on Monday, he surprised William by offering him the trailer HE owned, as a replacement.
 
Then the store posted about it on their Facebook page.  And almost immediately, people started dropping by to give William clothes, blankets, and food.  And they also posted on Facebook talking about how grateful William was when they talked to him.
 
But Rob probably said it best.  Quote, "We're all human beings, we're all neighbors.  I had something that I could live without, and he needed a place."  (UpNorthLive.com / Facebook)
