“(He) works in the oil and gas sector, which is very badly hit right now, so we offered it and (he) was very happy with it,” said David.

The Kims now hope that others will get in touch to take advantage of their offer.

“We live together, not just alone,” said Jonathan. “So (we) share with our heart.”

“We are so grateful for the opportunity we were given,” said David. “It is important, especially in difficult times, to pay it forward and help our neighbors.”
