Good Samaritan Update: Picks Up Hotel Bill For 70 Homeless People In Chicago


In this Pandemic and new normal, is there a Good Samaritan that will help people within your area? As we remember in 2019, there’s a mystery of a Good Samaritan that helped 70 homeless people in Chicago when the city, gripped by a polar vortex, was expected to be colder than Antarctica, Alaska and the North Pole as the wind chill plunged temperatures further to feel like -45C. As if we were watching the movie “The Day After Tomorrow”.

The Chicago Tribune reports people were camped out overnight. Salvation Army spokeswoman Jacqueline Rachev told the paper that the group had set up a makeshift camp, using donated propane tanks to keep warm when one exploded.

After the phenomenon, the Chicago Fire Department removed all the other tanks as well because they seem at risk.

Ms Rachev said that as she was preparing a makeshift warming center at the downtown Chicago Salvation Army, she was notified by the city that an unnamed donor would pick up their hotel bill.

“All the folks there, some wonderful citizen is going to put all of them up at a hotel for the rest of the week,” she said.

Only one person did not accept the offer, instead opting to stay at a warming center, the paper reported.

So to date, no updates have been collated on the whereabouts of the good Samaritan. In this pandemic, we all need the help we can get – from food, shelter, vitamins, and protection. We can always be a good Samaritan to anyone who needs it. So, loosen up and help everyone that needs your helping hands. Salute to all the leaders, health frontliners.
