I tried to give a homeless man a brand new soft blanket and pillow and he refused. any ideas why a homeless person might refuse this?

I felt so bad about this guy sleeping under this overpass. it was very cold and pouring rain out. i rushed to the nearest Target to buy a new blanket and pillow and drove right back to him. i offered it to him and he said 'no thanks' i was like 'you sure man? its cold out.' and he still refused. i told him to try and stay warm and drove off.

im very baffled by it. maybe i should have left it near him anyways. why do homeless people refuse help or gifts like this sometimes? what do you think?
