Goodwill Staff In Texas Search For Donated Coat With $5,000 In The Pocket

NOEL KING, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Noel King. Before you donate clothes, you might want to check and see if there's anything in your pockets. A woman in Texas left $5,000 in the pocket of a coat she donated to Goodwill, sending the store's staff on a quest to find and return her money. After three weeks of searching, an employee found both. She didn't get to keep the money, of course, but she was given a well-deserved bonus.
