Charity held to help man with cluttered home
MIAMI (WSVN) -- A South Florida man is getting a fresh start with the help from the community.
A benefit was held Sunday for Bill Kleinschmidt to fix up his home after he was nearly evicted from it.
Kleinschmidt arrived by limo to Blooms Restaurant in Miami, where a percentage of everyone's tab will be donated to help him.
Kleinschmidt was almost sent to jail after a 10-year battle with neighbors to clean up his condo. The place was filled with debris and sewage backups, which created a roach infestation and unsanitary conditions.
Several groups came in and helped get the place in order.
