Johnny advised Kate to get back into her car and keep the doors locked the entire time. He told her that the neighborhood wasn’t safe enough for her to walk all the way to the closest gas station. Instead, Johnny offered up his services to Kate and he went out of his way to help in the most amazing way.

Kate was incredibly touched by Johnny’s kindness and willingness to help her out when she really needed it most.

Johnny did not ask me for a dollar, and I couldn’t repay him at that moment because I didn’t have any cash, but I have been stopping by his spot for the past few weeks. I repaid him for the gas, gave him a jacket, gloves, a hat, and warm socks, and I give him a few dollars every time I see him,” Kate said.

But that was only the start of the repayment…
