LAKE CHARLES, La. (KPLC) - A Lake Charles businessman gave out free food to hundreds of people this afternoon in an effort to help out the homeless.

Dependable Plumbing Owner Derrick Guidry and his team set up outside Wallgreens on Gerstner Memorial Drive and handed out cold drinks and pizzas to anyone in need.

“I just want to give back to the community,” Guidry said. “God blessed me, and I just want to give positive vibes around Lake Charles. You know, it’s a lot of bad things around here, so it’s going to be nice to see something positive on the TV, and maybe people start following the trend of what I’m doing, you know, and this won’t be the last time I do it.”
