Dick Van Dyke has demonstrated his good nature by providing cash to job seekers and conversing with the homeless in Malibu.
On Thursday morning, the 96-year-old actor returned to his favorite nonprofit organization, Malibu Community Labor Exchange, which connects businesses with job seekers.
The iconic Mary Poppins and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang actor handed out $5 dollars, chatted with various workers, and brought delight to homeless individuals around.
Whenever he has some fives, Dick explained. But he can’t do it all the time.
A center employee then joined in, ‘Just call him an angel from God,’ which the humble veteran dismissed with his characteristic modesty before waving farewell.
Dick, who was dressed in a white long-sleeved shirt, gray sweatpants, and black slip-on shoes, is a renowned supporter of the group and was first pictured there handing out money in May 2021.
After leaving the center, he performed errands at a Malibu bank and drugstore, appearing to be in good spirits the whole time.
Dick has seven grandchildren and four with his ex-wife Margerie Willet, whom he married on the radio show Bride and Groom in 1948 before divorcing 36 years later.
Michelle Triola Marvin, his lifelong companion, died in 2009 after 30 years of marriage.
He has been married to Arlene Silver, a former make-up artist, since 2012.
Dick has had a full life. He served in the US Army during WWII and is only one Oscar away from being an EGOT.
He is most remembered for his parts in The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961-66), Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968), and, most recently, Mary Poppins Returns (2018).
Dick demonstrated he could still act, sing, and dance on Valentine’s Day this year, appearing with his wife 46 years his junior in their Everybody Loves a Lover music video.
Along with barbershop quartet The Vantastix and trumpet player Tony Guerrero, the pair played a cheerful rendition of a Richard Adler and Robert Allen song made famous by Doris Day in 1958.

Dick Van Dyke is giving back to the community… what a legend! ❤️Posted by Daily Mail on Wednesday, 19 October 2022
Dick first met Arlene when he presented Julie Andrews with a lifetime achievement award at the 13th Screen Actors Guild Awards in 2007.
They got along quickly as pals, therefore it didn’t feel like he was that much older than her, Arlene remarked.
He is the epitome of humanity. She has never met somebody who was that cheerful, real, and great. He’s like a joyful pill.
