"That's when I met Johnny".
McClure created a crowdfunding page for Bobbitt on November 10 with a goal of $10,000, which so far raised more than $235,000 for apartment rent, a vehicle, and months of expenses.
Bobbitt used to spend most of his time sitting with a sign on a roadside in Philadelphia.
Last month, a woman found herself out of gas on the side of I-95 in Philadelphia. She stopped at the nearest exit ramp, her heart pounding as she got out of the auto to find a gas station, she said.
Johnny told her to get back in her vehicle because the area was "unsafe", then walked to a nearby gas station and reportedly used his last 20 dollars to buy her gas.
Minutes later, the man returned with a gas can.
McClure said Johnny would return with a red gas can, having spent "his last $20 to make sure I could get home safe".
Bobbitt didn't ask for money; McClure didn't have any then.
She said she has been driving back to Bobbitt's spot over the past few weeks, giving him a few dollars every time.
She has since taken him essentials to stay warm and repaid him for the gas, and her GoFundMe page has raised more than $280,000 - far more than her $10,000 goal.
"I don't have an explanation for it". I got nobody to blame but myself, ' " D'Amico told the Inquirer, adding later: "He knows where he's at and he knows what he has to do to dig himself out".
"I wish that I could do more for this selfless man, who went out of his way just to help me that day".
Earlier this month, Bobbitt flashed a wide smile when they told him about the first set of donations amounted to $769.
"God, that's incredible. Damn, y'all did all that".
"It's insane, you can relate to that", McClure said.
The couple understands how their help in reaching out to landlords and vouching for Johnny's character will help him overcome some of those hurdles.
"People talk about Philly". I have honestly met more good people than bad, I really have. He studied nursing and was a former paramedic and firefighter. Bobbitt wanted to relax in the hotel and watch television, D'Amico said. "His expectations changed, and what he wanted to do changed", D'Amico said.
On Thursday, D'Amico bought Johnny a computer.
"The whole game changed in the last 24 to 48 hours".
"Johnny has reflected on his life", D'Amico said.
After moving around the country for a time, he came to Philadelphia a year ago with a job lined up and some money to buy a truck. At that moment, McClure didn't have any cash to repay him back.
