John Patton explained that the card is specifically designed for fast food restaurants in America.

Patton, the founder of the Atlanta nonprofit Street Charity, is making a significant impact in the community.

According to the speaker, nowadays, individuals who wish to assist homeless individuals with some money no longer carry cash. Additionally, they want to ensure that the money is not spent on substances such as alcohol, tobacco, or other harmful items.

Charitable individuals have the option to explore Street Charity, as suggested by the expert.

“We’re not advocating for fast food as a healthy diet choice. Rather, we recognize that on a scorching day, we’re providing individuals with the opportunity to enter our establishment with dignity and simply order a refreshing Coke,” stated Patton.

According to Patton, if the recipients fail to utilize the cards, they will expire after a few months.
