Jordan wants to help local people after many have struggled over the past year due to Covid-19.

“I know how it feels to struggle,” he said.

“I know what it’s like to have nothing.

“I want to pay it forward and hopefully inspire others to do the same.”

He also wants to bring peace to the local area as he said it has been turbulent for residents.

“The young kids here know nothing but drugs and gangs,” he continued.

“I want to show them something different.”

Jordon’s own children have been an inspiration to him.

He said he wants to be a role model to them and show them the benefits of helping others.

“If you have nothing come and we will help you,” he said.

“Wouldn’t it be nice if more people were willing to help others in their time of need.”
