Driver delivers pizza and home to homeless man

Lee Hasse, 76, lives near Ham Lake, Minnesota. Every Saturday night, for years, he's ordered a pizza from Domino's, and Angela Nguyen delivered it to him. But this fall his life changed. A powerful storm damaged his home, making it uninhabitable. Then his son died in a snowmobile accident. Angela's daughter Sarah, also a Domino's driver, noticed Haase living alone in a 12-foot camper with no heat, plumbing or electricity, and it would soon be winter. "We can't let a human being live like this," she said as she started a Go Fund Me page for Haase. Donations poured in from as far away as Australia.

In eight weeks the page accrued $32,000 and the Domino's crew bought Haase a mobile home. All the furnishings were donated by the community of Ham Lake. Christmas came early for the man who loves pizza, because the pizza delivery drivers loved him back.
