Details of the Recognition
Arnold Harvey, who has worked with Waste Management for more than 25 years in the Gaithersburg, MD district, is far from your average trash hauler. In fact, some may just know him as a “tent angel.”
Harvey, a U.S. Army veteran, has spent nearly a decade providing tents, food, blankets, clothes, and other supplies to the D.C.-area homeless through his small nonprofit, God’s Connection Transition. He was inspired to begin the charity when he noticed an alarming amount of people sleeping outside on his overnight trash service route.
Now, the nonprofit that is run by Harvey and his wife, Teresa, helps about 5,000 people in need each month.
“You just gotta outlast the storm by one day,” Harvey told Fortune when he was honored as one of Fortune’s Heroes of the 500 in 2015.
