$3.3 Million Donated to Skid Row Charities by an Unlikely Source

June 11, 2015

Talk about a Happy Friday for charities working with those on skid row in downtown Los Angeles. A man who had a huge heart for those struggling gave back in a big way this spring.  Delmer Clarence Kellberg, whose story is worth reading, donated over $3 million to skid row charities upon his passing two years ago.  According to the Los Angeles Times, the money is being distributed to over thirty organizations currently working on skid row, with each organization receiving around $100,000.  His money will impact thousands of people across the city of Los Angeles and for those organizations wanting to know more about this mysterious man, his son gave them some insight: "My father was not a man who made friends easily. But he felt strongly that one of the purposes of his life was to fight for the 'little guy' (as he termed the most indigent of his clients), and it was in this realm that he most easily allowed his humanity to show through."
