Mpls man cares about poor ‘because someone has to’

Allan Law, of Minneapolis, tells KARE 11’s Boyd Huppert he’ll be on the streets for the rest of his life. It’s because a lot of other people will be, too.

Law, who started serving the disadvantaged while still a teacher in the Minneapolis public school system, made it a full-time gig when he retired 16 years ago.

Last year he handed out more than 700,000 sandwiches, 7,000 pair of socks, and 75,000 bus passes.

“I never complain,” Law tells Huppert. “I don’t have to do it, I could quit right now, and I never will quit, ever, as long as I’m alive.”

“Someone has to care,” he says.
