Donor walks into Colo Springs motel, rents rooms for homeless

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Fifteen homeless people in Colorado Springs will be inside for Christmas thanks to a maysterious donor who bought motel rooms for them.

Employees at the Express Inn say the woman walked in Tuesday and paid for four rooms for a week. She insisted they be given to homeless men and women camping along Fountain Creek. the total came to $640.

The woman gave her name as “Linda Craft,” though The Gazette newspaper could not find anyone by that name. The woman said God told her to buy the rooms.

One man staying in one of the rooms, 52-year-old Steve Sample, called the strange gift of a warm bed for a week “a wonderful thing.”
