The man asked her if she had anything to eat.
Rodgers was stunned.
But she has decided to do something about it.
Rodgers created Project Change, a group of people who help the homeless and less fortunate in Clay County.
Rodgers said the group distributes everything from food, blankets, clothes, soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes and more to those in need.
She started the group about one month ago.
"(It was established) to help the homeless and needy in our community," Rodgers said. "Any basic need they need and call us for, we take it to them."
All the items are paid for through donations Project Change receives from members of the community.
For example, Rodgers said she recently received a call from a nine-month pregnant woman who said she had no food.
When Rodgers arrived at the woman's home, all she had was a mattress on the floor and a crib for the soon-to-arrive baby.
Rodgers immediately went to work, collecting donations for the woman.
"We hooked her up for everything she needed for the first six months of the baby's life," she said. "A lot of young moms call us for baby clothes."
Rodgers said after donations are collected, the group delivers them to residents in need.
"We still get calls all the time," Rodgers said. "We have been getting donations through word of mouth."
In addition, Rodgers said she has gone to several churches to promote the program and has placed fliers strategically throughout Brazil for those in need. She also said a private donator recently sent the group 14 boxes of men's clothing.
Currently, the group receives private donations only.
"Our motto is, 'Love thy neighbor as thyself,'" Rodgers said. "There is a huge need. Everybody wants to ignore the poor in our community. There's a huge need in this community. People want to ignore them instead of reaching out.
"Anybody should stop and think, 'I could be one step away from being any of these people.'"
