SPOKANE, Wash. -- On Sunday afternoon, words of experience were read out loud, as a team and family prepared to hand out food and supplies to the homeless.
"I'm homeless now but I'm not done, there will be better days," read the poem.
Sandy and Rich Densmore lost their 14-year-old daughter Brooklynn Densmore, following an ATV accident a couple years back.
Brooklyn's love for volunteering in the community inspired her family, along with other members of West Coast Racing, a downhill mountain bike team, to continue her legacy by supporting the homeless community.
"We give out backpacks, 28 of them full of essentials, we try to help (them) get through some of the tough times in winter and help bring a little cheer during the holiday season," said Rich Densmore.
Brooklynn's mother Sandy, remembered how passionate her daughter was when it came to volunteering.
"Her bedroom window, she had all of the stickers from all the times she volunteered and she was proud of it, I mean she had the biggest heart," said Sandy Densmore.
Brooklynn's sister agreed.
"She would think this is like the coolest thing ever," said Ashley Densmore.
Despite the cold, this team brought warmth to the streets of downtown Spokane.
Many were happy to see smiles and warm food.
One woman was happy to receive food and supplies in celebration of a day special to her.
"It's her birthday!" said Sandy Densmore as she pointed at the woman, happy to receive a fresh pizza.
Brooklyn's friends and family said they were happy to be a part of what they call "The Brooklynn Project," in its third year.
"I love it, everybody's reaction is so awesome and like they are also grateful," said Anastasia Rodriquez, Brooklyn's best friend.
"It's such a blessing to everybody else, yeah, it's amazing," said Brooklyn's sister Sydney Densmore.
