Kate McClure, 27, was driving into Philadelphia in Oct. when she ran out of gas around 11pm on the Interstate 95. ” My heart was beating out of my chest” McClure wrote on her GoFundMe page.

A man she called “Johnny” came up to her car, told her to lock her doors, and spent his last $20 to buy her gas. “Johnny did not ask me for a dollar, and I couldn’t repay him at that moment because I didn’t have any cash” McClure, who works for the New Jersey Department of Transportation, writes.
