Philadelphia - A New Jersey woman who was helped by a homeless man when she ran out of petrol in Philadelphia is raising money to help him.

Kate McClure was heading to Philadelphia to visit a friend last month when she ran out of petrol on Interstate 95. The Florence Township woman pulled over and began to worry until a homeless man approached her.

The man, whose name was "Johnny," told her it wasn't safe and he bought McClure petrol with his last $20.

McClure promised she would return to pay him. McClure and her boyfriend, Mark D'Amico, have since raised over $20 000 for the former ammunition technician.

The pair hope to get "Johnny" an apartment and help with transportation.
