Web Exclusive: Jorge Fierro helps the homeless with The Burrito Project 

(KUTV) Jorge Fierro was homeless for a time after coming to Salt Lake City.

He took advantage of the services offered to the homeless and has since become a successful businessman.

And now, he is doing his part to help the homeless with The Burrito Project in Salt Lake City.

"It feels that I'm just doing my part," he said. "I do it because it has to be done."

Fierro says he loves to "pay it forward" and at the end of the day, he's just "content because it fulfills who I am."

The Burrito Project has been going for over five years.

Fierro also feels fortunate to be part of the Salt Lake community, and hopes we all can gain perspective for how blessed we are in America.

"I think that we Americans need to be more thankful for what we have," he said.
