RIVERSIDE, CA (January 19, 2016) – A Facebook post with pictures of a firefighter giving a homeless man his shoes is going viral.
According to the City of Riverside Fire Department, a group of firefighters was returning from training in California when they saw a homeless man walking barefoot on the side of the road.
