Batman to the Rescue

Unlike the DC Comics superhero that combats crime in Gotham City, Santiago’s Batman is seeking to combat food insecurities by regularly feeding the city’s homeless population.

Using a white SUV – in lieu of the Batmobile – Batman rides around the streets of the city delivering hot meals.  During the past few months of quarantine, many of the city’s homeless are among the hardest impacted. 

Aiming to uplift the spirits of his community “Solidarity Batman” is doing more than just delivering food. He delivers humor, kind words, and a smile underneath his PPE.

In an interview with Reuters, Batman said, “Look around you, see if you can dedicate a little time, a little food, a little shelter, a word sometimes of encouragement to those who need it.”

Preferring to keep his identity anonymous like Bruce Wayne, Santiago’s Batman is appreciated. Expressed best by the words of Simon Salvador, a thankful recipient of Batman’s kindness, “It is appreciated…from one human to another.”
