Suit Donated With $13,000 In Pockets

MOLINE, Ill., Nov. 30 (UPI) — A Goodwill spokeswoman said workers were searching for a suit donated by an 80-year-old Illinois man who believes he left $13,000 in the pockets.

Goodwill spokeswoman Dana Engelbert said the Moline man, who asked not to be identified, donated an old suit to a local Goodwill store and realized about a week later that his life savings, about $13,000, had been in the pockets, WQAD-TV, Moline, reported Tuesday.

“We’re sorting through the donations that came in at the time,” Engelbert said.

She said the store was searched and workers are looking through donations from the location that were shipped to an Iowa City warehouse. However, she said the suit may have already been sold.

The man’s daughter said her father has been taking care of his wife, who has stage 4 cancer, and is “devastated and embarrassed” by the costly mistake. She said a $1,000 reward is being offered to the potential buyer of the suit if that person “does the right thing.”
