When Lori Lematta first started selling Street Roots in March, it was to meet her immediate needs — bus tickets, phone minutes, a driver’s license, vet trips for her 10-year-old dachshund Susie.
Now, however, Street Roots gives her a little more than a small income.
“Street Roots and my customers keep me going,” she said. “I wish they knew how much I appreciate them. They’re my foundation right now.”
