Frederick Callison did not want to receive a handout even though he was homeless. The 53-year-old just wanted a job and food. Callison moved from Washington to Sacramento two years ago with a job as a cook that fell through, leaving him out on the street.
Nonetheless, he has been sitting outside a grocery store with a pile of resumes ready to be handed out for anyone willing to hire him. Michael Marteen was shopping with his fiancee and two kids when he noticed Callison.
“When I asked if I could see his resume, he hopped right up to hand one to me and then started telling me all about his experience as if it were an interview,” says Marteen. The man was so impressed he took a photo of the resume and shared it on Facebook with the hopes of helping Callison find a job.
The restaurant provided clothes for Callison to wear and a friend is giving him a place to stay until he can get back on his feet. Marteen has also started a GoFundMe page to help Callison.
