He may be best known for his charming rooftop dance moves while playing a chimney sweep in Mary PoppinsBut Dick Van Dyke hasn’t quietly retired since his big role in 1964.
In fact, the 95-year-old has been caught doing all kinds of good deeds over the years.
His latest goodness? Last week, the actor showed up at Los Angeles’ Malibu Community Job Board and began handing out cash to job seekers waiting in line outside the nonprofit organization.

Helping others has been an important part of Van Dyke’s life for decades. He is known for spending more than 20 years volunteering at the Los Angeles shelter The Midnight Mission. He also served as a spokesperson for the Cell Therapy Foundation and the National Reye Syndrome Foundation.
The last time we shared the good news related to this Hollywood legend? It was to inform about Van Dyke dancing with his wife in real life, Arlene Silver, in the happiest music video ever for the bluegrass group Dustbowl Revival.
Oh and then There was a time that he treated the diners at a Santa Monica Denny’s to a spontaneous performance of Chitty chitty bang bang with his a cappella group Vantastix.
The secret to aging gracefully? It seems that he is simply stepping out of Van Dyke’s shoes, giving to others and dancing and singing whenever we can.
For proof, watch this video of Van Dyke dancing in a department store.

“That rule about having to act one’s age?” The Hollywood star has been joked that “I just don’t believe it.” Cheers to that.
