This Homeless Man Found $17,000 Outside A Food Bank. What He Did Is Positively Wonderful!

Homeless people have this stereotype around them that they are all a group of bums that don’t want to work, alcoholics or drug addicts.

While there are people that fir those three distinctions in every walk of life that one can think of there’s also one type of homeless person that people don’t talk nearly often enough about; the person that’s down on their luck that just wants to try and do good.

Now, there are people that when they do something that could be considered a good deed they want a ticker tape parade for doing something that any decent person would do. There are also the people that just want nothing more than they were going to get anyway had they not done that good deed.

That’s the thing about doing something good and not expecting anything in return is that nature has a funny way of returning that kindness back to you .

From Breitbart:

A homeless man is being hailed for his honesty after he discovered a bag containing $17,000 outside of a Washington state food bank and gave it to the staff instead of pocketing the money.

The man, Kevin Booth, found a bag sitting outside Sumner Food Bank in Sumner, Washington. Curious about what was inside, he opened the bag and found stacks of money totaling $17,000.

“At first, I was like, what the heck is that lying on the ground?” Booth, 32, told the News Tribune Friday as he recalled the moment he found the money over the summer.

Once Booth inspected the money to see if it was real, he waited outside the food bank until it opened that morning, handing over the cash-filled bag to one of the volunteers opening the doors.

“He said, ‘This is for you, somebody left it on your doorstep,’” Anita Miller, director of the Sumner Food Bank, told the Washington Post.

The volunteer who received the money quickly realized something was not right when she opened the bag, placing a phone call to the local police.

Authorities kept the money in their possession for 90 days in case someone claimed it. When nobody claimed the money within the 90-day period, the police returned the money to the food bank.

The police department held a ceremony where they presented the check to the food bank and honored Booth with a citizen’s certificate. The food bank also gave Booth gift cards to his favorite store, Fred Meyer, to thank him for his generous efforts.

    Seems those involved could have done a little more then give him a citizens certificate & gift cards. Maybe find him a modest place to live & a job until he got on his feet. With his honesty sure he would make a good employee! Illegal immigrants are given a hell of a lot more then that!

    Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any recommendations for inexperienced blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.

    Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Many thanks
