“I’ve always had a passion for helping the homeless. Whenever family and I went to a Braves or Falcons game, I always made my parents give me a dollar to give to the homeless,” he said. “I always noticed how they were ignored by the people in downtown Atlanta.”
That passion stayed with the Walton High School junior as he created Soul Supplies, a nonprofit that gives downtown Atlanta’s homeless population bookbags filled with supplies such as water, cleaning wipes, and deodorant. Paul, 17, created the nonprofit more than a year ago while participating in Giving Point, a Roswell-based program aimed at helping young people become engaged in their communities.
