The first Bob the Builder Award of 2010: Marcia Merrick

They call her the "Mom of the Streets."  She is up by 4:30 in the morning, so she can be downtown by 6 am when the homeless shelters have their clients kicked out of the facility for the day.  She has a van she has stocked with 400 sack lunches.  Every day.  It has become so much work that she started a non-profit group called "Reaching Out Inc".  Check out her website. 

She was named by ABC daytime TV show "The View" last month as one of the top 3 ultimate volunteers in America.  A true blessing to the homeless of Kansas City.  Thanks Marcia.
