Mystery Man Hands Out $10,000 on Skid Row

December 25, 1985

As he has done for the last few years, an unknown man gave 1,000 presents--$10 bills--to the poor and homeless on Skid Row Christmas Eve.

The man took half an hour to hand out the $10,000.

"We asked him who he is, but he would not tell us," said Clancy Imislund, who runs the Midnight Mission. "He said if he told us, it would take away his joy of giving.

"The money is for them to use as they see fit," Imislund said.
