A Guy Who Lived On The Streets ... Now Shines There!

Larry's story is a great one. He was a street person living under a bridge who sought a better life, and he accepted the challenges of getting there.

He changed his life ... with some help from the people of San Francisco and elsewhere. When "The San Francisco Chronicle" published Larry's story, the public listened, and responded. It was the tale of a destitute man with the dream for his destiny - self respect, a roof over his head and a little business he could call his own - and what he did to achieve it.

 

UPDATE: LARRY'S GENEROUS FANS DONATE TO REBUILD  HIS SHOESHINE STAND

October 31, 2012: The Halloween Spirits are all benevolent, thanks to Megan Hopkins, who launched an online drive on Larry's behalf to help people donate funds to rebuild his shoeshine stand - when vandals running amuck after the San Francisco Giants won the World Series set Larry's shoeshine stand ablaze, heavily damaging it. Donations have now well-exceeded the funding drive's $5000 goal and more are pouring in. Read about it here at the Indiegogo website. (click here). Also, Read more about it here in the November 1st, 2012 article in the San Francisco Chronicle. (click here). Way to go! Another wonderful page in Larry's story of triumph over diversity.
 

UPDATE: VANDALS BURN LARRY MOORE'S SHOESHINE STAND

October 28, 2012: Vandals running amuck after the San Francisco Giants won the World Series set Larry's shoeshine stand ablaze, heavily damaging it. Read about it here in the San Francisco Chronicle. (click here).
 

UPDATE: LARRY MOORE STRUGGLES AGAIN

March 10, 2012: After all his previous progress with help from so many in the community, it seems Larry is facing his demons again. Read about it here in the San Francisco Chronicle. (click here). When he shows up at his stand, Larry still gives an incredible shine - but he seems to need that same "great-shine-discipline" in his lifestyle - and perhaps your help to convince him is needed.
 

UPDATE: LARRY MOORE HITS HEALTH SNAG 

December 9, 2010: Larry is headed for surgery to correct a serious back problem and infection, that has laid him up. Read about it here in the San Francisco Chronicle.
