When Jake Austin, a resident of St. Louis, Missouri, purchased an old truck, it didn’t look like much. But he had a vision for it and was determined to transform the white hunk of junk into something miraculous.

And so it was! After a year of work, Jake had refurbished the truck into the flagship of his new charity, Shower To The People. Once you learn what it’s purpose is, you won’t believe how beautifully simple it all is!

This was the truck when Jake bought it. Not much to look at, that’s for sure. But soon enough, he’d totally transformed it.
