Goodwill Worker Finds $43,000 in Donated Clothing

by -

Goodwill worker Tyler Gedelia-WWJvidA manager of the Goodwill thrift store in Monroe, Michigan was cleaning out the pockets of some donated clothing this week when he found a bright blue envelope containing bundles of hundred-dollar bills.

Tyler Gedelian didn’t even count it before turning over the cash to police. He told WWJ-TV in Detroit that he never even considered keeping any of the money.

“Oh, no … never,” he said. “As soon as I found it I was like, ‘This isn’t mine  …. we’ve got to get it back to the owner.’”

It turns out, not even the owner had seen the stash, which was in a robe pocket from an elderly relative’s recently emptied closet.
