Omaha Musician Helps Homeless man find a home - June 7, 2007

Omaha Musician Craig Thumper Samuels has made another successful effort to make his city a better place. He recently reached out to, and befriended Richard Stone, a homeless man who has no family here and until now no place to live. “Mr. Stone has attended every one of my park dates (referring to the Summer Jazz Concerts in the Park Series) so far and I got to know him by talking to him a little after each show.” Thumper recently found out that Mr. Stone had no place to live, and that he was sleeping on the benches in the parks and not eating for days. Thumper immediately took action by contacting some of his friends and found Mr. Stone a 1 bedroom apartment . Thumper paid the security deposit and the rent at the apartment complex for 1 year. “This should help Richard get back on his feet, and get his life started again.
