For the last year, a 24-year-old Grubhub delivery woman has been living out of her van and rescuing stray dogs in the Detroit area when not at her job. When her company ran a contest calling on employees to describe how they are making a difference, Destiny Powers made a video; it was so compelling, the company picked her this week as one of the 20 employees to receive a $10,000 grant from entries across the country.
Check out Destiny’s YouTube video here:
Due to the pandemic and the loss of work, Destiny was forced to give up her apartment and move into her 14-year-old van. And that’s where she lived with her own dogs and/or the ones she rescued or fostered. If the dogs needed veterinarian care, she would take them and find them the best homes she could.
Unfortunately, her van continued to break down, but her grandfather helped her obtain the Sprinter van – the vehicle of her dreams. Sadly, her grandfather passed away after an accident; the van was her grandfather’s gift to Destiny.
With the grant, Destiny will continue to deliver food and rescue – dogs are her passion.
“Sooooo thankful!I can’t wait to help more fur babies & build out my new van,” Destiny posted on her Facebook page as she makes plans to build in some shelter cages to enable her to rescue more dogs.Can’t wait to see what the future holds for me and all the fur babies in needIf you know of any animals or rescues in need of transport please DM me“
