Bernice and Thomas

Featured Video Play Icon

Bernice and Thomas are alone and jobless in Salt Lake City. They’re traveling from Seattle to Arizona, but due to sickness, money ran out in Utah. Now, they don’t know where any shelters are and don’t have any friends or family here.

When the rain and snow came, they had to cover themselves under a cardboard box beneath a tree until McDonald’s eventually let them stay warm inside.

The winter is hard and cold in Salt Lake City, and if Bernice and Thomas can’t find a way to earn the bus fare back to Arizona, who knows when they’ll be able to continue on to somewhere they can call home.
