Much loved Hollywood legend Dick Van Dyke, 95, was seen handing out cash to struggling job seekers during the COVID pandemic.

On Tuesday Van Dyke withdrew a bag full of cash and then drove himself to the non-profit Malibu Community Labor Exchange, which helps people find day jobs, according to the UK’s Daily Mail. Van Dyke handed out cash from his car window to people waiting in the employment line.

At 95 Van Dyke is considered to be in the high risk group during COVID but this didn’t stop him.

Van Dyke is best known for playing chimney sweep Bert in the 1964 classic Marry Poppins alongside Julie Andrews.

Van Dyke, who is also known for his role in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, was spotted last week in a restaurant singing Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’s theme song.
