A couple in their 70’s were living in their car with their three dogs after moving from Texas to Florida and finding the job he’d been promised had fallen through.

Gordon and Dee Head were spending their third week in a Walmart parking lot when Mr. Head prayed.

“I asked God to send us some angels… and they started showing up.”

Last Monday, Brandi Dussing, her sister and some friends were grocery shopping and noticed the couple sleeping in their car.

The young ladies insisted on buying food for the family and the dogs, but Brandi’s kindness didn’t stop there. She set up a YouCaring fundraising page to help them get back on their feet.

“The woman has such swollen feet from not being able to stretch out,” she explained in her appeal. “The man has had heart surgery in the past and shouldn’t be living in a car, especially at his age.”

After the campaign was shared on Facebook $14,500 was raised from 350 strangers.

WTVT-Tampa picked up the good news story and reports that the “angels” had been looking for temporary foster homes for the dogs until Gordon, a master plumber, can find employment.
