As of four months ago, Kirk Davis, a 57-year-old retired veteran, was homeless and living out of a Toyota 4Runner with no A/C. Now, thanks to an anonymous donor and some donated work from local businesses include Pack Brothers Collision Center, J&J Upholstery, Stanley Towing and Collision Safety Consultants, Davis now has a refurbished 2003 Cadillac.
