In a world where jobs and food are scarce for many, one man stands tall in the name of charity.
Last Friday, as flurries floated about a nearfreezing Highlands Road, local insurance salesman Patrick Jenkins prepared himself for two days of wintry weather.
Last year, Jenkins spent 48 hours suspended 60 feet in the air by a crane. This year he repeated the feat in the name of the “Cold for a Cause” donation drive, which benefits local relief agency CareNet. The organization has more than 4,700 families on file who have used its services over the past several years.
