In recent times, the world has faced various difficulties due to our failure to protect the environment. Despite this, some good Samaritans continue to shine their light, and it's always encouraging to appreciate such people openly.

Downtown Chicago was facing extreme cold due to the polar vortex that occurred in the city and caused temperatures to drop to -45C.

This severe weather condition made the Chicago Salvation Army move homeless people to a makeshift camp, where donated propane tanks were used to keep them warm. All was going smoothly at the camp until one of the tanks exploded.

To be on the safe side, the Chicago Fire Department evacuated the residents and ejected about 100 propane tanks that were given by the Salvation Army.

As a result, the temperature dropped back down to -22C. Jacqueline Rachev, a spokeswoman for the Salvation Army, was notified of this occurrence, and she began making preparations to move the people from the camp to a  warming centre.

Soon, Ms. Rachev discovered from city officials that an unidentified man offered to foot the bill of 70 hotel rooms for them.

Speaking to Chicago Tribune, she said:

“Isn't that wonderful? At least they’re warm, and they’re safe."

Candice Payne, the 34-year-old angelic woman, and her husband paid for 70 rooms in a hotel on the city's Southside. What is even more intriguing is that did it anonymously. But soon enough her identity was revealed.

She said:

 We wanted to get as much of them out of there as possible.

Payne and her husband saw the struggles of homeless people in the local camp established for them. But when the frost hit, they started to worry whether they could find warm places. Staying outside for a long time with that temperature could bring serious danger to health and life.

What the woman did was benevolent. Hopefully, other philanthropists will be motivated to contribute to the well-being of these people.

We praise the Salvation Army for always coming to the rescue of people and hope that they get more support.
