$2K Returned To QC Couple By Goodwill

Posted: Updated:
A Quad City couple is grateful for the good heart of a Goodwill Store trainee.

A company spokesperson says a trainee working at the Clinton, Iowa Goodwill Store found almost $2,000 in a coat earlier this week.

The company quickly went about finding the rightful owner.

Mary Anspach, the Clinton store manager, acting on a clue found with the money, called the Rock Island, Ill. store to help in the search.

Anspach says the coat was donated in the Quad Cities and banking information was found along with the money.

With help from the bank, the rightful owner was tracked down and reunited with their missing money.

According to Goodwill, the man contacted them on Wednesday, May 14, 2014 to offer thanks and explain what happened.

He said was going through some of his wife's old clothes in order to get rid of the things she'd never wear again.

He said she is suffering from advanced stages of dementia and he had no clue she had hidden money in the coat.

The man told the Goodwill the money is a blessing to him and his family in their time of need.

He also asked Goodwill to "give a special thanks to the folks in Clinton for returning the money."
