CLEVELAND — To celebrate the organization's first anniversary, Walls of Love assembled 25 different walls on Saturday across Ohio and Michigan.

Holly Jackson, the founder of Walls of Love, used to be homeless, but now she spends her time easing the burden of homelessness for others. She assembles bags full of hygiene items, school supplies, and clothing and attaches them to walls across the area for people to take what they need.

Jackson started Walls of Love in 2018 in Cleveland. In the single year Jackson's organization has been around, it has put up 228 walls and has helped more than 30,000 people.
