Man stumbles upon $1,160, turns it in, now giving to charity
The Livingston County Daily Press & Argus reported on the find by an attorney from Howell, Jules Fiani.
They report that Fiani found $1,160 in a white envelope outside of a Dairy Queen last May. He turned the found money into police, but when no one claimed it, the police returned it to him.
From the Livingston County Daily Press & Argus:
Although Fiani could keep the money, he said, "It's all going to charitable organizations."
"It's found money and it's the right thing to do," Fiani said. "I wish I had more to give away."
The first $250 is earmarked for the Sheriff's Department's Shop With a Cop program, which pairs underprivileged children in the community with a police officer to shop for Christmas gifts.
"It's been really exciting dropping money off," Fiani said Thursday, noting that so far he's made donations to Make-A-Wish and Gleaners Community Food Bank.
