This is one of the best feel good stories that I have heard about.

Think Stock

You know when you have been out somewhere for a day or two and haven't been able to get a shower, you're hot, sweaty and all you really want to do is to take that shower and you feel so much better afterwards?  Imagine if that was your life.  Homeless.

There is a couple in Sauk Rapids that has a mobile shower unit.  And that is what they do... give the homeless a place to shower.

What started out as a free laundry event with Kipps Laundry, Nancy Dyson, president to the non-profit Neighbors to Friends, along with her husband, Jason, decided to go a step further.

Through her free laundry event, Nancy also realized some haven't taken showers in days, sometimes weeks.

Partnering with her husband Jason. They bought a bus and built a shower inside to park and provide free showers.

Jason understands the need as he was homeless years ago. 

"I know what it's like to be on the street. I know the ins and outs of what you need to get a shower," said Jason.

Both Jason and Nancy know a free load of laundry or shower won't solve this issue completely, but it can make someone's day
a little bit easier.

No, it might not solve the homeless issue... but it's definitely a step in the right direction.

There are some really good people in this community.  Hats off to you, Nancy and Jason.
