Jermaine Bell from Allendale in South Carolina had been putting his pocket money and birthday money aside to hopefully make it to Disney World in Florida; a place he always dreamt of going. However, when news of locals evacuating their homes as Hurricane Dorian approaches, the selfless boy decided to use that money to purchase food like hot dogs, chips and water – feeding over 100 evacuees as South Carolina is in the path of the potentially devastating storm.

The sweet kid also stood alongside Highway 125 with a pair of handwritten signs advertising the food to those in the process of evacuating their homes.  

“The people that are traveling to go to places, I wanted them to have some food to eat, so they can enjoy the ride to the place that they’re going to stay at.” he told WJBF.

About 830,000 people are under mandatory evacuation orders on the South Carolina coast. Stores and restaurants have been boarded up with wood and corrugated metal in Charleston’s central area and others are preparing to head somewhere safe.

As we previously reported, Dorian crushed the Bahamas after the category 5 hurricane hit on Sunday. A total of 7 people have died and thousands have been displaced. It was said that Dorian has weakened to a category 3 hurricane as of Thursday morning.
