They discovered the homeless man and decided to give him some money so he could buy hot food to keep warm.
However, when Johny went to see the man, he found that a friendly woman had taken the man's pants home to have them washed.
She brought them back tomorrow so he could have clean pants, but Johny insisted that in cold weather he couldn't stay outside without pants.
"Without hesitation [Johny] took off his own jeans and gave him his pants," Courrie said.
Johny had worn shorts under his jeans so he could hand them over to the man on site.

Courrie said the man was "so grateful" to receive the jeans.
She said she was "incredibly proud" to watch her partner and that she and her oldest daughter, Lola, were full of tears.
"I'm very proud of him and the selfless act he has done," she said. “He made someone feel a little warmer on a freezing cold night.
"I'm proud that he's our son's father and a role model for the four girls we share."
After getting back in the car, the family decided to bring more clothes and things to Vinnie to keep warm.
After that, the young family packed a suitcase of clothes for Vinnie and drove around for an hour looking for him, but couldn't find him
They packed a suitcase with shoes, clothes, toiletries and a warm blanket for his dog, as well as a bottle of hot soup and some snacks, but by the time they drove back to the gas station, Vinnie had already moved on.
The family drove around for an hour looking for him and went back out the next day, but couldn't find him.
Then they were told that Vinnie had left because fireworks had been thrown at him at the gas station and had gone to the bus stop to seek shelter.
Corrie said, "We really hope he gets the help he deserves for being so polite and grateful."
