A homeless man known for toting his "God Bless You" sign around the Indianapolis area received a welcomed surprise this month when the local police force partnered to provide him with a new pair of sneakers.
Members of the Lawrence Police Department announced in a recent Facebook post that they were able to convince the Indiana Pacers NBA team to donate a pair of size 17 shoes to a local homeless man, who exceeds seven feet in height.
