From cooking to crosses, L-40 retiree helps the homeless

L-40 retiree Calvin Minton makes crosses from railroad spikes to raise money for the homeless.

WHEN CALVIN MINTON from Local 40 (Elizabethtown, Kentucky) retired in 2013, he’d planned to volunteer to build houses with Habitat for Humanity. A heart attack and hip replacement shifted that plan to something a bit less demanding. Instead, Minton uses his culinary skills to feed the homeless and his blacksmithing skills to raise money for a local shelter for the homeless.
