More people are reaching out to help the homeless Lakewood man seen on video pouring coffee on his head in exchange for $5.

Ronald Leggatt was the subject of the viral video. Lakewood Police did not press charges against the group that offered him the $5 to pour coffee on his head, but as word of the incident spread he began to get some help with his situation.

After many pictures showed Leggatt wearing an old San Francisco 49ers jacket, the team came through with a new one, which he received late last week.

“Dear Ron, We hope this care package finds you well. Just to let you know that your friends at the San Francisco 49ers are thinking of you and hope you are doing well this winter," wrote the team in a letter inside the package.

"Thank you very much! You surprised me to death," Leggatt said in a video of his acceptance of the package. "I appreciate everything you've done for me"

According to a GoFundMe page started for Leggatt, many have stepped forward to help the 65-year-old. The hotel where two men took him has continued to let him stay as arrangements are worked out for permanent shelter.

"Someone has taken him to social security to apply for benefits, someone else took him to see the good people at the S.T.E.P. program in hopes of finding more assistance with housing and other things. We've also heard from someone who works with a HUD agency that housing may soon become available through them," wrote Hayley Holmes Raynor, the page's creator. Nearly $4,000 has been donated.

Donations can also be sent to Minister Steve Brigham, who can be reached at 732-364-0340.
