A young woman has raised over $280,000 for a homeless man who, she said, spent his last $20 to buy her gas after she became stranded on a major interstate. On a fundraising page she has since set up for the man, Kate McClure, 27, wrote that she pulled off an exit ramp on I-95 near Philadelphia late one night when she realized her car was running out of gas. A homeless man, Johnny Bobbitt, 34, spotted her vehicle and approached to offer her assistance, she said. “Johnny sits on the side of the road every day, holding a sign. He saw me pull over and knew something was wrong,” McClure wrote. “He told me to get back in the car and lock the doors. A few minutes later, he comes back with a red gas can.”
Say hello to Kate McClure, from Florence Township, New Jersey.
This past October, McClure was heading to Philadelphia to visit a friend when she ran out of gas on busy Interstate 95. McClure panicked and pulled over, wondering what to do.
