Waste Management employees donate $5,000 found at work to charities

posted by Ashley King - 

Employees at a waste management facility in Arizona found some unexpected treasure amid the trash. While sorting through the boxes and bottles, they found $5,000 in cash on the conveyor belt.

Instead of just dividing the money up among the workers there, they decided to do the right thing and turn it into police. That way, the person who lost it could claim it again.

The money had a 30-day public notice and, amazingly, nobody claimed it, so it was released back to the employees.

But instead of spending it, they decided to donate it a local youth foundation.

The leader of the charity was thrilled to have extra money to help those in need – and the employees said they were just glad to find a way to help. (KNXV-TV)
