ST. CHARLES, MO (KTVI) – Employees at a Goodwill store in St. Charles are looking for the person who may have accidentally donated $1,200.

The Goodwill store on West Clay in St. Charles is where a very surprised employee found the $1,200 in cash. Then the very honest employee immediately told her boss about it.

Goodwill employee Holly Henderson has been keeping busy this week sorting through end of the year donations. On Tuesday she picked up three plastic bags of clothing and started filtering through them.

“Well, I was going through the pockets and there it was and it was just really exciting.”  said Holly Henderson.

Goodwill isn’t releasing the denominations of the bills or the exact article of clothing. They are hoping that the person that accidentally left the money will give those descriptions to reclaim the cash.   They only know the donor brought the items in the drive through drop-off on Tuesday betweeen 9am-2pm.

Hollie said she didn’t give a thought of keeping the money. She had to do the right thing.

“I wouldn’t want someone to do that to me so yeah, I had to turn it in, ha. ha, ha.”  said Holly Henderson.

The Goodwill loss prevention team is looking through surveillance video to see if they can pinpoint the donor.  They are asking whoever left the money at the West Clay store in St. Charles to call Goodwill at  314 982-8802.  If the money isn’t claimed in 30 days it will  go to Goodwill programs that help veterans and people with disabilities.
