NEW JERSEY - A homeless man in New Jersey is now thanking the San Francisco 49ers after receiving a box of swag from the team.
It all started after a man took advantage of 65-year-old Ronald Leggatt's desperation for money, and offered him $5 to pour hot coffee on his head.
The story along with the picture spread across the country and has been shared thousands of times.
The photo showed Leggatt wearing an old 49ers jacket in a photo that caught the eye of a Niners employee.
The team sent Leggatt a box of gear including a new jacket, hat and Super Bowl 50 pin.
A GoFundMe page was also started for Leggatt, he is now living in a hotel and out of the cold.
Leggat says he will be a 49ers fan for the rest of his life.
