Just five months after attempting suicide, Dennis Bonifas has found a new purpose in life in the form of volunteer work.
The Ohio resident, who suffers from bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, has been spending his spare time cleaning up hateful and racist vandalism in his area.
"I've grown a lot since then and now it's time for me to help give back, and this is just one of the ways that I can do it," he told ABC 13.
Bonifas owns B & D Powerwash and Painting Services in Swanton and said he got the idea to donate his time and resources after seeing a post on Facebook about several swastikas that had been spray painted on a nearby street, the news station reports.
Deciding to do something about it, he took his equipment to the vandalized area and cleaned it up for free.
