Oklahoma Goodwill employee finds $42G hidden in donated sweaters, helps return money to owner

A Goodwill employee in Oklahoma has been rewarded for helping to return a huge bundle of cash that was accidentally donated with some old clothes.

Andrea Lessing recently discovered the money while sorting through a pile of donations at her Goodwill location in Norman. But didn’t immediately realize what she’d stumbled upon, as the bills were wrapped up in two old sweaters.

At first, Lessing figured they might be books, but further inspection revealed a much more valuable find: $42,000 in crisp bills.

“I never expected anything like this to happen to me of all people,” she remarked in a statement to Fox News. “To me it was just another normal day at work. I was in the back sorting. I never expected to come across $42,000.”
