Homeless man leaves donation at damaged Oregon Historical Society

https://www.koin.com/news/protests/homeless-man-leaves-donation-for-battered-oregon-historical-society/

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Executive Director of the Historical Society’s Kerry Tymchuk shared a heart-warming story Monday following the destruction caused to the OHS building during Sunday night’s riot.

Tymchuk said a napkin was dropped off at the front desk of OHS with a handwritten note and a one dollar bill:

Hello, I’m homeless, so I don’t have much to give you. Just some of my bottle collecting money. But, I saw your windows got broken and I wanted to help. You once gave me a free tour before the pandemic. So, this is a thank you.
OSCAR

Tymchuk spoke about the generous gift and said that though OHS was receiving several donations in the aftermath of the damage, Oscar’s gesture was priceless.

“We’ve been fortunate to receive many generous donations to OHS over the years–some upwards o a million or more dollars,” he said. “No donation means more to me and to the society than this dollar donation from Oscar.”

7. That was my thought.

That's what comes of being raised in Church.

"Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury. For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living."
Mark 12:43-44.
