A homeless man found a package with 17 thousand dollars and gave them to charity

Бездомный нашел пакет с 17 тысячами долларов и отдал их благотворительной организации

32-year-old homeless man Kevin Booth from the city of Sumner (Washington) found a package, which contained 17 thousand dollars in cash, writes the Washington Post. The man took him only 20 dollars, and the rest gave the staff the food Bank, a charity near the door where he found a package

In the summer of 2018 Booth came to the food Bank and found a brown paper bag. Booth looked into it because I felt there might be leftover food that the charity distributes to those in need. Finding a large sum of money, he waited for the volunteers of the Bank and gave them almost everything, leaving himself only one 20 dollar bill “to find out if it’s genuine”.

What else is known:

Package handed over to the police. According to the laws of the state, where he spent 90 days waiting for the owner who never showed up. The police gave the money to the food Bank, which will spend for mobile refrigerator and freezer.


Kevin Booth, in turn, got from the police a certificate of honor, and charity — gift cards for different stores. The food Bank decided not to give the money that the Booth could have used unreasonably. He also offered housing, but the man chose to remain in his tent in the woods.
