CLINTON, Iowa (AP) — The Goodwill store in eastern Iowa’s Clinton has returned almost $2,000 found in a donated coat.
Goodwill says a man who lives in the Quad-Cities area had given away the coat because he didn’t think his ailing wife would wear it again. He didn’t know she’d hidden money in it.
The coat ended up at the Clinton Goodwill, where the cash was found by a trainee earlier this week. Store manager Mary Anspach did some detective work with the help of the Rock Island, Illinois, store, and the man who’d donated the coat soon had back the money.
