Woman raises more than $120K for homeless man who helped her

An online campaign has raised more than $22,000 for a homeless man who used his last $20 to fill up the gas tank of a stranded motorist outside Philadelphia.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A New Jersey woman who was helped by a homeless man when she ran out of gas in Philadelphia has raised more than $120,000 to help him.

Kate McClure started the Gofundme.com campaign earlier this month after she said she ran out of gas on Interstate95 and a homeless man named Johnny Bobbitt Jr. offered to walk a few blocks to buy her some with his last $20.

McClure says she didn't have any money to repay him at the time but she's returned to the roadway several times to give him cash, clothes and food.

After a few visits, she started the fundraiser with the hopes of using the money toward housing and other expenses for the 34-year-old Bobbitt.

Nearly 1,700 people had donated to the campaign as of Wednesday afternoon.
